From the Nurse
  • Here at Independence, we want to teach our children to be their own health advocate. So as parents, please teach the importance of getting plenty of rest, eating a healthy breakfast & lunch, drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated and washing their hands before eating, after using the restroom and after play. Here in the clinic the nurse will also provide teaching whenever possible to help students learn the importance of health in their own life!
  • Please be sure your student's immunizations are up to date or that you have an exemption form on file.

HEALTHY SLEEP HABITS

The start of a new school year means moving from a summer to a school-year routine.  Making this transition gradually, beginning a week or two before the start of school, can be beneficial.  This transition is also a good time to remember how important getting enough sleep is for students to do their best in school.  To help with this, we are providing you with some key recommendations for healthy sleep habits. Thank you for your partnership in your child's education.

CCSD Healthy Sleep Habits

FORMS

New forms must be completed every school year.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION

The school nurse must be notified before any medications are sent to school with students. Most medications can be administered before or after school. When medications must be brought to school, the nurse is required by District Policy and state law to have a "Permission to Give Prescription Medication at School" form on file with the doctor's signed order and the parent's signature. The medication must be brought in its original container, labeled with the student's name, the name of the medication, the dosage, and the time and number of days it must be administered.

Consent for Prescription-Homeopathic Medication At School 

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION

Can be given if parent has submitted online parent forms giving the school nurse permission to do so.

ASTHMA/ALLERGY/SEIZURE

If your child has medications for any of the above named health conditions, we ask that you have your provider fill out care plan forms (see link), that you also sign. This will give us direction on what to do should an emergency arise. We do this for your child's safety. These medications also need to be in the original container, labeled with the student's name, name of the medication, and dosage.
