Nurse Notes

SCHOOL NURSE Mrs. Brooke Sentell CHEROKEE COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION MEDICATION POLICY ALL medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, must be brought to the school nurse’s office by the parent or guardian. ALL medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, to be given at school require a Parental Authorization Form to be completed by the parent and/or guardian. Prescription medicines will require forms to be completed both by the physician and parent/guardian. Any change in medication will require a new form to be completed. NO over-the-counter medications will be maintained or provided by school personnel. Non-prescription medicines will be given only to those students whose parents/guardians provide the medication AND the appropriated Parental Authorization Form(s). ALL medications must be provided in original containers with (in the case of prescription medication) completed pharmacy labels and/or (in the case of over-the-counter) manufacturer’s labels and an additional label with a child’s name and dosage/time instructions. No medication samples will be accepted at school. ALL medications will be kept in a central, secure location and given only by designated personnel that received training by the school nurse, except where arrangements are expressly authorized under the policy for :Self-Administration of Medication.” Medications stored in envelopes, ziplock bags, etc. will not be administered. No verbal orders for medications (prescription and over-the-counter) will be accepted over the phone from anyone except from the child’s physician. Parents should check with their child’s physician regarding the need for medications to be given during school hours. For example, medications prescribed for three times daily often can be given before school, after school, and at bedtime. Students may not have medication in their possession, except with a physician’s written request or a physician’s order on an asthma plan. Students who violate these rules will be in violation of the Alcohol/Illegal Drug Use Policy. The school nurse reserves the right to deny administering medication to any student. Should you have any questions concerning the medication policy, please feel free to call the school nurse Mrs. Brooke Sentell at 256-927-1738 ext: 706 LICE POLICY The student will not be allowed to return to school until the student has been cleared to return by the school nurse or the school nurse designee.

Any classes missed on this day will be excused.

Any classes missed on this day will be excused. Third Case of Lice When lice are found, a letter will be sent home with the child informing the parent of the lice condition and the process for correction. Any classes that are missed during this time will be unexcused. THE PROCESS OF GETTING THE STUDENT BACK IN SCHOOL IS AS FOLLOWS:

  1. The child must be brought to the school by the parent or guardian.
  2. Before the child can return to school, the child's head must be shampooed and lice-free.
  3. Upon re-entering school, the child must report to the main office for verification that all lice are removed.
  4. The school nurse will verify that the child is lice-free.
