Administering Medications at School

If your child needs medication during school hours please come to the office.  Medication that is ordered by the doctor to be administered three times a day should be given before school, after school, and at bedtime, eliminating the need for it to be given at school.  This applies mainly to antibiotics.  We are requesting that no daily medications be given at school after 1:30 p.m.  Any medication that is to be given after this time can and should be given at home.  (This does not apply to "as needed" medications like inhalers and acetaminophen.)

Tylenol, cough drops and any other medications your child may need must be supplied by parents. We cannot administer medicine to any student unless we have a written note from the parents with dosage, time to be given, and signatures.  If you have any questions regarding this, please call Shannon Kennedy RN elementary nurse at 402-826-5822 or 402-826-7806, Tammy Wenz Intermediate nurse at 402-826-5833 or 402-826-7711, or Abbie Page LPN MS/HS nurse at 402-826-5844 or 402-826-7792 or you can reach her at the high school at 402-826-5811.
