In order to effectively meet your child’s needs during the school year, it is necessary to obtain certain health information and current phone numbers where parents or another designated adult can be reached in case of an emergency. As a school, we have also instituted specific procedures and policies that must be followed to protect your student who attends Advantage Academy. These procedures and policies are as follows:
• All immunization records must be presented at time of application to the school and must be up to date.
• It is the responsibility of the parent to keep immunizations current.
• A written record of administration of the needed immunization must be given to the School Nurse or her representative within one month of the due date.
• The child will not be allowed to come to school until he has received the immunization and the nurse has received the record.
• this is a test line
• this is another test line
• No medication will be given to a student unless prescribed by a physician.
• All medications, including over the counter, must be prescribed by a physician and in a container labeled by a pharmacist. (No exceptions will be made to the policy)
• No member of the school staff will administer Aspirin, or medication containing Aspirin. (No exceptions will be made to the policy)
• Students needing to receive medication during school hours must have the Student Medication Request Form filled out and signed by the parent before any medication will be administered.
• Parents should make every effort to schedule the administration of student medication in such a manner that medication will not need to be administered during school hours.
• Students must be free from fever for twenty-four hours before returning to the school after an illness.
• No child with any type of communicable disease will be allowed to attend school until the disease has run its course and the child is no longer contagious. It will be the decision of the School Administrative Staff whether or not a child is ready to return to school after an illness with a contagious disease.
RESTRICTION OF ACTIVITY
• Any student requiring restriction from any type of physical activity must have a written statement by their physician. The restriction of the physical activity must be clearly stated.
• If the student wishes to participate in a restricted activity, the physician must give a written statement that the student is physically able to participate in the activity.
• It is imperative that school officials be able to contact one of the parents or a designated emergency contact in the event of a medical emergency or other incident occurring with your child. Any change of phone number must be given to the School Office immediately; we must be able to contact you at all times.
