Vision and Hearing Screening

All children four years and older should be screened for possible vision and hearing problems. When possible, the School will provide vision and hearing screens through the UTHSC nursing school or private individuals.

 

Allergies

If your child has any significant allergies, please notify the Teacher and the Office in writing. Please include any appropriate action to be taken, medication to be administered and whom to notify.

 

Medications

Please do not send medications in your child’s backpack or lunch. All medications must be brought to the office where they will be stored in a locked cabinet.  Since it is impossible to keep refrigerated medications in a place inaccessible to children, we ask that you not send any medication requiring refrigeration.  All medications should be in the original container. In order to administer medication, a parent must sign a Medication Form stating dosage and times and are only administered by Office Staff or the child’s Teacher.  Date, time, dosage and name of the Staff who administered the medication are noted on the form.

 

Illness

If your child becomes ill at school, he/she will be comfortably isolated in the office and you will be contacted.  Please do not send your child back to school until he/she is free of symptoms (fever, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.) for 24 hours.  In case of a highly contagious illness in your child’s class, you will be notified.  Staff is required to send home any child with the above symptoms.
