Prescription Medicine for Children

A Note Regarding Prescription Medicine:

Dear Parents,

In order for prescription medications to be given at school, a
 written statement or an order from the physician’s office must
 accompany the medication. The physician’s statement must contain the 
following:


- The student’s name
- The physician’s or other licensed prescriber’s signature and
phone number
- The name, route and dosage of the medication
- The frequency and time of administration
- The date of the order.


This applies to daily medications and occasional or as needed
medications, such as inhalers and antibiotics.


An adult must deliver the medication to Harold Martin School in a 
labeled prescription bottle with the student’s name and prescription 
information. Any medications sent in plastic bags, envelopes, or
other containers, even if labeled by a parent cannot be given at
 school.


Any changes to an order, such as a new dosage, will require a new 
physician order.


Medications will be kept in the nurse’s office and may not be carried
in a student’s backpack, lunchbox, etc.


Forms are available at HMS to bring to your doctor, or a form from
the physician’s office is acceptable.

We have a long history of successful volunteerism in our district.  Volunteers provide enrichment for our students and important assistance for our teachers. But below the surface, volunteers also help provide a strong community atmosphere for children as they see first hand the partnership that can exist between school and home.

We're in the midst of 2nd summer.  The chill of autumn will soon be in the air.  Most of us will reach for a sweater or sweatshirt.  For some, this is not an option as some folks do not have warm clothing for the cold weather.  This month we are collecting gently used clothing (sweaters, sweatshirts, fleece, and jackets) to help people stay warm.
