Crabapple Crossing Elementary is concerned about the health and well-being of your child. Please keep the school informed about allergies, diseases, or other conditions your child may be exposed to.
The clinic and classroom teacher should have a written record of your child's condition and specific instructions for their care. If your child requires daily medication, he/she must come to the clinic to have it dispensed. Written permission is required to administer any kind of medication. Medication has to be provided by the parent, brought to school by the guardian, and it must be in the original container.
Any student identified with a chronic illness, needs to have a health care plan on file in the clinic. If your child has a chronic illness (asthma, diabetes, seizures, etc.) please notify the clinic and classroom teacher. Please notify the clinic should your child acquire head lice. Proper procedures will be taken in the classroom to prevent further spreading.
Prescription medication requires an authorization form signed by the doctor to be on file in the clinic. Over the counter medications require written authorization from the parent/guardian to be on file in the clinic. Forms are available at the front office and in the clinic. All signed forms from you and /or your doctor may be faxed directly to the office at (770) 667-2841.
Is your child too sick to come to school?
The main reasons for keeping your child at home are:
- If he/she is too sick to be comfortable at school
- If he/she might spread a contagious disease to other children
- Fever of 100.4F or above (can return to school when they have been without fever for 24 hours)
- Vomiting more than once
- A very frequent cough
- Persistent pain (ear, stomach, etc.)
Most of these problems need to be discussed with your child's pediatrician to determine if an office visit is needed. There are a number of other communicable diseases that require students to be excluded from school.
