NEW Medication Consent Form

2016 - 2017

Medication Form

Student Consent

NEW Medication Policy for 2016-2017

All medications (including over the counter and cough drops) must be kept and dispensed in the Health Office. Medications should be in their original container labeled for that student. A consent form to keep medications in the Health Office and dispensed as ordered must be completed for all students. Provisions can be made for students to carry their own emergency medications. A consent form (for inhaler or emergency med) can be obtained from the Health Office.

Screenings

The Health Office does vision screenings (for all new students to MPS and special education students) and scoliosis screenings (for all 7th graders). If your child does not fit into one of these categories, but you would like him/her screened for vision or scoliosis, please call to request a screening.

Chronic Health Conditions

If your student has a serious chronic health condition, such as anaphylaxis (severe allergy to a substance where an EpiPen is needed at school for a life-threatening allergic reaction), asthma, diabetes or seizures, please call the Health Office for the forms you will need to complete to put an "emergency care-plan" into place while your student is at school. We will make sure all of your student's teachers are aware of his/her health condition and what they need to do in case of an emergency.
