Please Remember:

  • All students need an Emergency Card on file in order to participate in field trips. 
  • If your child/children are going on an overnight field trip, make sure to have the Medication Administration form filled out for any medications they need while on their trip. A form is required for each medication. 
  • Please have the appropriate medical forms on file in the clinic if your child/children have medical conditions.
  • All medication forms expire each school year, including the acetaminophen and antihistamine forms.
  • Please register your child/children in CareDox (School Care). This is our electronic charting system that notifies you of treatment provided to your child/children. CareDox is HIPAA & FERPA compliant. If you would like to register, email CareDox at [email protected]

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the clinic and talk with a nurse anytime during the school day.  

Stay healthy and happy and remember to wash your hands!
