Miller has a registered nurse on duty in the clinic. In the event that medication must be administered at school, the medication must be furnished by the parent and turned in to the clinic. All medicines must:
- be in the original container
- properly labeled
- must be accompanied by a written request signed by the parent/guardian and/or physician prescribing the medication, identifying the medicine, amount and time(s) to be given, and the length of time the student will be taking the medication.
Students may not carry prescription or non-prescription medications with them to any class. Any exceptions must be approved by the principal with written notes from the parent/guardian and the student's doctor, or the school nurse may make an exception on a temporary basis when unusual circumstances exist.
A doctor's authorization is required for any of the following:
- Any medication given for more than 10 school days
- Any controlled drug
- Emergency medications kept in hand; I.e., inhalers, epikits (physician instructions required)
- Annual update of doctor's authorization for long-term
For the protection of all students, a child will not be permitted to remain in school, and the parent/guardian will be notified, in the event of:
- Fever of 100.4 or more
- Suspected contagious disease
- Cannot remain comfortably in class
- Undetermined rash
If your child has any of the above symptoms before coming to school, please keep him/her at home. Your child should be free of fever for 24 hours prior to returning to school. When contacted by the school to pick up your child, it is important that you pick up him/her as soon as is possible. Any release from school must have the verbal consent of the parent/guardian.
