Pre-K & Kindergarten Health Assessments
Each preschool and kindergarten student must submit a completed "Health Assessment Form" before they can attend school. This assessment is a requirement and it is very beneficial for your child's health and wellbeing. The health assessment provides us with information regarding your child's medical status/history which will help us to better serve them and their needs while they are at school.
Please make sure that your child's immunization record is complete and up-to-date. Each and every student must have their immunization record complete and up-to-date before they attend school. North Carolina law requires school systems to have this documentation on all students; there will be no exceptions for this deadline. For more information regarding immunizations, you can contact your child's doctor and/or visit the North Carolina Health and Human Services website at http://www.immunize.nc.gov/schools/k-12.htm
Our school has a written policy to assure the safe administration of medication to students during the school day. If your child must have medication of any type given during school hours, including over-the-counter drugs, you have the following choices:
- You may come to school and give the medication to your child at the appropriate time(s).
- You may obtain a copy of the medication form from the school nurse, or print the "Authorization of Medication Form" below. Take this form to your child's doctor and have him/her complete the form by listing medication(s) needed, dosage, and number of times per day the medication is to be administered. The form must be completed by the doctor for both prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The form must be signed by the doctor and you, the parent, or guardian. Prescription medications must be brought to school in a pharmacy-labeled bottle which contains instructions on how and when the medication is to be given. Over-the-counter drugs must be received in the original container and will be administered according to the doctor's written instructions.
- You may discuss an alternative schedule for administering medications with your child's doctor.
Please keep in mind that students are NOT to transport medication to or from school. An adult must bring the medication to the school office and "sign" it in/out.
School personnel will not administer any medication to students unless they have received a medication form properly completed and signed by both the doctor and parent/guardian, and the medication has been received in an appropriate labeled contained. In fairness to those giving the medication and to protect the safety of your child, there will be no exceptions to this policy.
If you have any questions about the policy, or other issues related to the administration of medication in schools, please contact Allison Ormond at 252-745-3404.
If your child has any allergies, please make sure that it has been documented on the "Student Emergency Information" Form at the beginning of the year. If you are not sure if an allergy has been properly documented or if a new allergy has been diagnosed, please contact Allison Ormond at 252-745-3404.
If your child has any food allergies that we need to be aware of, please review, complete, and submit the "Food Allergies - Medical Statement Form" to ensure that we are able to provide the appropriate accommodations. You may obtain a copy of the food allergy form from the school nurse, or print the "Food Allergies - Medical Statement Form" below.
