Medication Policy and Procedure
All effort should be made to schedule a student’s medication regime at home. However, we recognize that this is not always possible. In this case the following is required:
The first dose of any new medication must be given at home.
Prescription Medication requires the following:
A written note from the physician. Note: THE PRESCRIPTION LABEL IS NOT A WRITTEN ORDER. The note can be hand delivered by the parent with the medication, or faxed to our office.
The medication must be delivered by a parent in a properly labeled pharmacy container.
A “Hold Harmless” release must be signed by the parent.
Parents are responsible for picking up any medication left at the end of the regime.
If the dosage changes during the school year, the Dr. must write a new order. All medication orders must be renewed every school year.
Students may carry their own inhalers/epipens. This still requires an new doctors order every school year.
Over the Counter Medication requires the following:
The medication must come in a small properly labeled container ( i.e.: Tylenol or Advil)
A “Hold Harmless “release must be signed by the parent.
All medication must be picked up from the nurse’s office prior to the last day of school annually. Any medication not retrieved will be disposed of.
Recommendations for medication administered at home:
If your child is on a medication at home, notify the nurse so it may be added to your son/daughters health record. This information is important to have in the event of emergency evaluation.

General Information Concerning Illness and Injury
Please keep your child home with vomiting, diarrhea, or with a fever 100 degrees or higher. Your child should be fever free without medication prior to returning to school. If your child has been absent for 3 or more days, we kindly request you contact the nurses office to give us an update as to your child’s condition. If your child has been seen by a physician we would like a note excusing them from school as well as any restrictions they may have upon their return.
In the event a student comes to school and is assessed by our office and the decision is made to dismiss due to illness, a parent will be contacted from our office. We will generally allow the student to use our desk phone under our direct supervision to contact a parent. After your child has spoken to you, we would be glad to speak with you directly for further instruction. Please understand we will never direct your child to send you a text message, as that is a violation of school policy. If you receive a text from your child please contact our office for further instruction. If attempts to reach a parent have failed, and we feel it is medically necessary ,we will contact the person listed as the emergency contact.
Conjunctivitis: This infection of the eye requires 24 hours of medication prior to return to school.
Strep Throat: This infection requires 24 hours of medication prior to return to school.
Head Lice: We have a nit free policy in the Hudson School District. We would kindly ask that you call us to arrange for a time to bring your child in for head inspection prior to their return to school.
Common Cold: As long as your child is fever free, they may attend school. Please be sure to administer cold medication prior to school. It would also be helpful to send your child to school with a water bottle, tissues, and 3-4 cough drops to carry with them and use throughout the day.
Injury: If your child has been injured we ask that you call our office prior to their return to school so that we may assist in their safe return. This includes a cast, splint, brace, stitches or any other medical device. In order to use crutches/wheelchair in the school we require a letter from the doctor with the diagnosis, projected length of time of impairment, as well as any limitations they may have( i.e. no gym, weight restrictions, no stairs).
