Our goal at the MHS clinic is to provide the best possible care for your child in the event of illness or injury while at school, and to promote good health and prevention of disease. We have outlined areas where additional documentation is required for the safe management of students with health conditions/concerns.
Parents/guardians are responsible for keeping their student’s Annual Health Card updated throughout the school year. Please let us know if there are ANY changes to your student's health condition or contact information.
Arrangements must be made for over-the-counter (OTC) medication to be given to students at school.
- Complete the Medication Authorization Form.
- Parent/guardian brings the Prescription/OTC medication to school clinic.
- Clinic staff will process order and verify medication amount with parent.
- Unused medications will be returned or destroyed per policy.
Severe Allergic Reactions and Asthma
A student with a history of severe allergic reactions and/or asthma attacks may carry their own medication and self-medicate in school. They must complete a Medication Authorization Form and a Contract to Carry and Self-administer Form with a current written prescription from their physician.
A student with a history of diabetes has additional options for the management of their condition consistent with their physician's orders. They must complete a Medication Authorization Form, Contract to Carry and Self-administer Form and a Diabetic Medical Management Plan to carry their own diabetic supplies while on campus and self medicate.
School Field Trips
Students requiring medications or medical treatments while on a school field trip must complete a Medication Authorization Form for the specific prescription/OTC medication required during the field trip. This form will be shared with chaperones so they can be trained on the safe administration of the medication for the student.
