Ms. Hurley is on duty each day during regular school hours. A Consultant Nurse is available upon request.

Inform the school about your child's unique health conditions or problems so that we can better provide for your child in the learning program.

Please send a note to school indicating the date and time of dental and medical appointments.

Our district does not provide insurance coverage for accidents that occur at school.


Procedures for the Administration of Medications in School 

If your child requires medication, please make every attempt to schedule it outside of school hours.
If that is not possible, this is what is required to administer a medication at school.

  1. The medication must be brought to the Health Office in its original container. No baggies or unmarked containers. You can ask your pharmacist to put a prescription medication in 2 separate bottles. One for school and one for home.
  2. Students are not allowed to carry any medication on them unless we have a doctors order stating that
  3. A Parent Authorization form is required for ALL medications given at school. For a prescription medication, a Parent AND Doctor authorization form is required. The form can be found on the Hamilton website under Health Services. You can also obtain one from the Health Office.

Illnesses:

  • If your child becomes ill at school, has a temperature of 100 degrees or more, incurs an injury, or for some other reason needs medical attention, the school will make every effort to contact the home, day care, or if necessary, the parent's place of employment so that arrangements can be made to pick up the child.
  • If you are keeping your child home for the day or if they will be arriving late, please call the absentee line 506-2706.  You may access this 24 hours a day.
  • If your child wakes up with a crusty eye that is red and itchy, please take them to the clinic to check for pink eye. Do not send them to school, as pink eye is very contagious.
  • If your child vomits, they need to stay home for 24 hrs. after the last time they vomited.
  • If your child has a fever, they must stay home for 24 hrs. after the temperature returns to normal.
  • If your child has diarrhea, they must stay home for 24hrs. after the last incident.
  • If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Hurley in the Health Office at 763-506-2704
