Students going into 12th grade
need to receive the meningococcal vaccine. Students going into 7th grade
need both the meningococcal and Tdap vaccine. KG students must have a current
physical along with their required vaccinations. Ohio law mandates that
students be excluded from school if documentation of immunizations is not
received by the 14th day of school, therefore it is very important that the
paperwork does get turned by the 1st day of school.
Students requiring prescription medication use
while at school must have the Prescribed Medication Administration Form signed
by the student’s physician and turned in to the school nurse prior to being
administered at school.
Students requiring over the counter medication
use at school must have an Over the Counter Medication Permission
Form signed by the parent and turned in to the school nurse prior to
being administered at school.
Parents/guardians should notify the school nurse
of a student’s medical condition (i.e. asthma, allergies, seizure
