STUDENT MEDICATION & HEALTH ROOM INFORMATION
Health and nursing services support students by managing health-related barriers to learning. Direct services are provided to students through the combined efforts of a health room/clerical assistant, school secretaries, designated teachers and instructional aides. District nurses coordinate the services through training, delegation, and supervision of staff, and act as liaisons between school, home, health care providers and/or community resources.
Minor illness or injury in a student while at school will be taken care of by a health room assistant, or other staff members who are trained to handle these situations. In case of serious illness or injury, district staff will provide basic care and use emergency medical services by calling 9-1-1 and parent(s)/guardian(s).
If it is necessary for your student to receive medication during school hours, specific school district forms must be completed. For prescription medication, the signatures of a parent/guardian and a health care provider are required. For over-the-counter medications, only a parent signature is required. All prescription medications must be brought to school in the original pharmacy-labeled container. All over-the-counter medications must be in the original packaging.
All students are required to have the Hepatitis B vaccines and provide the date they received the Chicken Pox vaccine or the date (MM/YY) they had the disease.
Please provide all immunization information on the Health Room Form. Universities and colleges are requiring up-to-date immunization information at the time of registration. This information can be sent to universities and colleges upon request.
If you have any questions, please contact Tiffany Davis, Waukesha West Health Room, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 262-970-3915 during regular school hours.
