Dear Parents or Guardian:
During the first week of school your student will be given an Emergency Contact Card. This card is to be filled out, signed by you and returned to school as soon as possible. In the event of an emergency every attempt will be made to contact you. I encourage you to register on your student's bio form the names of family members or friends that you feel comfortable sending your student home with in the event that you can not be reached.
The bio form Emergency Contact Card stays in the clinic and it is important that it is returned during the first week of school. If you are called to pick up your child from the clinic you will be asked for identification in order for the student to be released to you. Your student will not be released to a person not listed on the bio form. The person picking up the student from the clinic must be at least 18 years of age.
Per Florida’s parental bill of rights, at the beginning of each school year, parents are notified of all healthcare services by reviewing this page and the Student Handbook. Parents are provided with the opportunity to individually consent to or decline each service through the return of the Annual Health Card, sent out the first week of school. The Annual Health Card along with all other forms can be found on this site. If a student declines to return the Annual Health Card, there is no written consent for services.
MEDICATION GUIDELINES: Please read document below regarding protocol for medications to be administered at school. The two exceptions are an Epi Pen and an Asthma Inhaler. These may be carried by students ONLY with the proper documentation by their Physician. No student may carry any medication on campus including cough drops. This is a county-wide policy.
MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION FORM: The form is to be filled out by the student's Physician. It is necessary that each medication be filled out on a separate form.
Prescription medication as well as over the counter medication must have the form filled out. The bottom of the form has a place for the Parent/guardian to date and sign.
No medication will be given out at school unless the medication guidelines are followed.
IMMUNIZATIONS: Please check with your child's physician, making certain that he/she is up to date with immunizations as required by Florida Statutes and Florida Administrative Codes for admittance in school. If you have concerns feel free to call the clinic.
Florida Certification of Immunization: Students entering High School must be up to date on all immunizations as shown on the sample 680. These immunizations are mandatory for students to attend a Florida School. The immunization form is called a 680 and can be completed by the students physician or the health department.
