The Central High Clinic designed to treat minor injuries and to act as a temporary waiting room for students who have become ill during the school day. Should a student become ill, only persons designated on the Health Information /Emergency Release Card will be contacted to pick up the student. All telephone numbers must be recorded on the Health Information/Emergency Release Card and updated immediately if changes occur during the school year.
Illness During the School Day
Students will be sent home and should stay home from school due to illness if any of the following are present:
These will need to be brought in to the school clinic by the parent or guardian who will sign a "Medication Card."
Self Medication: Only high school students will be permitted carry an over the counter remedy (such as a one day dose of Tylenol, Aleve or Midol) and only when accompanied by written parent permission (a special form is available online or in the school clinic). Medication must be in original container and up to date. Aspirin may not be taken by students under 18 without a doctor's note.
"Controlled Medications": Ritalin, Dexedrine, Concerta and Adderral and all other "controlled" (Class II) medications must be brought to the clinic by a parent, guardian or responsible adult. Please do not send these medications to school with your child because of modern safety concerns. All controlled medications are counted by the school nurse and locked in a secure cabinet. All prescription medications must be in the original, properly labeled containers. The pharmacy can supply two (2) labeled bottles for this purpose. Medication sent in baggies or unlabeled containers will not be given.
Inhalers: For students who need to carry their inhalers at school, please complete the Asthma Action Plan form, which must be signed by the student's physician. We request that a second inhaler be kept in the clinic in the event that the student forgets the inhaler at home. All inhalers must have a label on the inhaler or be sent with the box prescription label.
