BRADEN RIVER ELEMENTARY CLINIC
Our goal at the BRE 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.
All parents/guardians must keep the information on their students Annual Student Medical/Health Information Form updated throughout the school year as needed. Your child’s teacher will send this form home on the first day of school. Please return this form as soon as possible. If there are any changes to your child’s health conditions or contact information please download and complete a new Annual Health Card.
STUDENTS THAT REQUIRE MEDICATION DURING SCHOOL HOURS
Many conditions can be treated at school with over-the-counter (OTC) medications and prescription medications. With proper authorization, documentation and signatures arrangements can be made for medications to be given to students during school hours. This may prevent loss of time out of school. To have prescription or OTC medication administer at school:
- Complete the Medication Authorization Form
- Parent/guardian brings the prescription/OTC medication to the school clinic in the original container/packaging
- Clinic staff will process order and verify medication amount with parent
- Unused medications will be returned or destroyed per policy
STUDENTS WITH ASTHMA AND ALLERGIES
Older students who have a history of severe allergic reactions and asthma attacks may self-medicate in school if they have a current written prescription from the physician stating they may self-medicate and carry the medication on their person. The two forms necessary for students to carry their own medication on campus are:
- Medication Authorization Form
- Contract to Carry and Self-administer Form
STUDENTS WITH DIABETES
Students with diabetes have an additional form that needs to be filled out by a physician.
- Diabetic Medical Management Plan
