      2. Providing evaluation and/or care as needed for students with illnesses or injuries.
     3. Assisting with collection of data and record keeping of immunizations and various health screenings (i.e. hearing and vision).

Helpful Reminders:
If your child needs to go home due to illness or injury your child must see the nurse who will contact you to get permission for them to leave school.

The Health Office does not stock Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, Tums or cough drops.

If you anticipate that your child may need Tylenol/Ibuprofen during the school day (headaches, colds, etc.) please be proactive by completing the Medication Authorization Form located on the District Health Services web page. A physician must also sign the Medication Authorization which can then be faxed to Health Services at 651-252-2520.

Students may carry Tums or cough drops with them and there is no need for permission from a physician or parent. 

Also, you must supply the Health Office with a small bottle of the required medication in the original container labeled with your child's name.

Please the District Health Services Web page for additional health information and Medication Permission Forms required for students to take medications at school.
