Medical Conditions • It is very important to share any medical conditions (ex. allergies, asthma, diabetes, or history of seizures) that your child may have with the health office prior to starting school. • Together we can develop a plan for your child to make the transition to school easier.
Medication • We prefer that all medications be given at home. • If your child needs medicine (prescription or non prescription) during school hours, this can be done with a form that requires a doctor’s order and parents permission. Forms can be found on the IUSD website under Health Service. • Physicians orders must match the prescription bottle and medication must be delivered to school by the parent in the original container.
Emergency Information • Please complete the emergency card and list all possible phone numbers where you can be reached in case of an emergency. • You will be called if your child is ill or injured. • If your child vomits or has a fever above 100 they will be sent home and need to be fever and symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school.
Healthy Habits • It is recommended that kindergarten students have 10-11 hours of sleep and eat breakfast before coming to school. • Please send your child to school with a healthy snack. • Brush teeth twice a day • Wash hands before eating and after using the restroom
