Concussion

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ~ A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Parents can find additional information such as signs and symptoms of a concussion at - http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/index.html  and a section on 'Concussion in Youth Sports'.

Important Notice Regarding Medications at School:

*Parents and Guardians, please remember that for safety of all students, the medication policy states children should not be transporting medications to and from school (meds should be delivered and picked up by an adult) and that we must have written permission from BOTH your Health Care provider and from you to administer ANY medications at school (this DOES include over the counter medications). However, some students will carry their epipens and/or inhalers ONLY with written permission from their health care providers and parents.

Important Notice Regarding Use Of Cough Drops In School

*In accordance with the medication policy and due to concerns of choking, allergic reactions and over use, we are sending this reminder that medicated cough drops (those with any additives such as menthol, vitamins, cough suppressants, etc.) are regarded as medications and therefore require written permission from BOTH the student's physician and parent/guardian. As with any other medications, these medicated cough drops should be delivered to school by an adult, leaving just enough for one week with the school nurse. If your child still needs them after on week, you should consult your child's physician.
Non-medicated cough drops such as plain Luden's throat drops or Halls Breezers may be used in school with written permission from a parent/guardian. ANY cough drops should be used no more than once every two hours. Sipping water all day is just as effective, with the added bonus of increased hydration and quicker recovery. Feel free to send your child to school with their own water bottle.
Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of all students during the school day and we appreciate your cooperation in following these guidelines.
