• First Aid
    In an effort to provide the most healthful and wholesome atmosphere for children at
    Oak Hills, we are providing parents with the following information, rules and regulations:
    • Please do not send your child to school with an illness, respiratory infection (common cold), a temperature of 100 degrees or above, or a rash. A child who has had a fever must have a normal temperature (below 100 degrees) for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
    • Do not send your child to school to be diagnosed.
    • If your child is sent to school and the staff thinks that his/her physical condition will not support an ability to learn, the parent will be called and the student will be sent home. If a parent is unavailable, persons designated on the emergency card will be contacted.
    Prescription and Non-Prescription Medication:
    If your child required medication to be given at school on a regular basis, you and your pediatrician must complete a medication form. In addition, the medications must be received by Oak Hills office staff in a prescription bottle from your pharmacist with the name of the student, the dosage, and the name of the medication clearly marked on the label. Please note the following:
    • If your child requires medication for bee stings, peanut allergies, asthma, migraine headaches, etc and you wish to keep medication on hand at school, a medication form will have to be signed by you and your pediatrician. The medication must be in its original packaging and clearly labeled with the dosage requested. There must also be a visible expiration date on the package.
    • The office does not have a supply of over the counter medications for students.
    • Office personnel will administer all medication provided by you unless otherwise specified by your child’s physician. Under NO circumstances may a child have any medication (including over the counter type products) on his/her person while at school. All medication forms must be renewed at the beginning of each school year.
    • We must have a note from the doctor detailing an injury and necessary restriction of all students with breaks, fractures or sprains. We need information about all injuries that require ace bandages, splints, casts, or crutches.
