A few reminders from the FHS Health Suite:
Please complete the “Consent for Administration of Approved Discretionary Medications and Health Contact Information” form found on this website or in the summer mailing. It is important that every student return this form on the first day of school as it provides the nurse with updated health information; also, discretionary medications (acetaminophen, cough drops, etc.) will not be administered to students without it.
If your child will need to take medications (other than those listed on the form noted above) in school, the “Parent’s Request to Administer Medication in School” form will need to be completed, signed by a physician and signed by a parent or guardian. This includes any prescribed or over-the-counter medications (Midol, Aleve, etc.). With the exception of inhalers and epi-pens, medication may not be carried by students. Any student who carries an inhaler or epi-pen must have one of the noted forms, signed at the appropriate places, on file in the nurse’s office. All order forms and emergency protocol forms are available on this website.
Summer is a good time to get a physical/eye/dental exam. It is also a good time to make sure all immunizations are up to date, including a tetanus booster. Incoming 9th graders and those students who will be retained in 9th grade will need proof of immunization for Tdap and Meningitis. This is new for the 2016-17 school year.
If there have been any changes in your child’s health needs or concerns, please alert the school nurse.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email the nurse, Tammy Jacobs, at: 410-887-1124, or firstname.lastname@example.org
