Student Data Cards

When your child is registered, and at the beginning of every year, you are asked to fill out a data card that is filed in the school office and a card giving or refusing your permission to administer OTC meds. It is absolutely essential that the information on that card is kept up-to-date with current information. This information includes:

  1. Home and business phone numbers.
  2. An emergency contact phone number (this should be someone who has permission to pick up and care for your child when you cannot).
  3. The name, address, and phone number of your child's doctor.

Please notify the school office of any change of address or phone number. This is of great importance should it be necessary to contact you concerning your child, especially in an emergency situation.


All medications, including aspirin, Tylenol, cough/cold medicines, etc., must be left in the office. Each medication, whether prescription or nonprescription, must be in its original container and marked with the child's name, a doctor's dosage instructions, and time to be taken. Only the school nurse can give nonprescription medications to students who submit a completed Health Information Exchange Consent Form. In addition, a doctor's note may be required.

Prescription medications must be accompanied by physician's orders that include exact dosage and, as mentioned above, must be in the original container. These requirements help protect your child by ensuring administration of the correct medication and dosage.

Student Insurance

However, the district does provide access to optional accident insurance. Student insurance booklets are available in the office upon parent request.
