Health & Medications
If your child needs to take medicine at school it will be necessary for you to provide:
- The name and grade of the child and what the medication is for.
- Written instructions detailing dosage and time for the medication.
- Any storage requirements for the medication. NO MEDICATION IS TO BE KEPT IN A CHILD’S SCHOOL BAG. Where there is special equipment (nebulisers, etc) or procedures, parents will need to come to school to administer the medication to their son/daughter. Of course, if your child is not well, then the best place for him/her is at home. On the back page is a list of infectious diseases and the necessary actions.
