Screenings for vision, hearing, height, and weight will be conducted for all students in grades K-8. Please keep in mind that these are screenings and if you are notified of a problem, please follow up with the doctor of your choice for further evaluation.
If you have moved or had your telephone number changed, please contact the school immediately! If you are working away from home during the day, please see that we have the names and numbers of at least one or two other people who have agreed to take responsibility in your absence, and who can be reached in case of an illness or emergency.
Medication, both prescription and nonprescription, will be given under the following conditions:
Immunization cards are required by law in order for the student to be admitted to school. Please be sure that all information and signatures are complete. If you have questions, please contact your school nurse or the Hamilton County Public Health Nurses.
Illness or Injury at School
Students are to be fever-free and free of vomiting and diarrhea for at least 24 hours before they return to school. This is for your child’s protection, as well as the protection of the other students.
Excuses for P.E. or Recess
All students are required by law to participate in physical education classes unless there is a medical reason for them to be excluded. In that case, a written excuse from your physician will be required. It is our feeling that all children need to be out for recess for energy release, relaxation, and socialization. We do not go outside in inclement weather. If you feel your child is too sick to participate in recess or physical education, he/she may be too ill to be in school.
