HEALTH OFFICE INFORMATION
STUDENT HEALTH POLICIES – PLEASE KEEP THE SCHOOL UPDATED WITH YOUR CURRENT TELEPHONE NUMBER (S) SO WE MAY CONTACT YOU OR OTHER FAMILY / FRIENDS IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.
STUDENTS LEAVING SCHOOL ILL will need to come visit us in the Health Office. Parents will receive a call from the Health Office, not the student, if student is going home excused due to being sick. If it is parent choice that the student go home not feeling well, the Health Office will also assist in that process.
HEALTH OFFICE – The health office is staffed daily by a Health Tech trained in first aid, CPR, medication administration, and school health. A Registered Nurse is at our school three days every week and available every day in the event of an emergency.
STUDENT MEDICATIONS – Signed parental consent forms must be received by the health office for all medications administered at school The Medication Administration Parent Consent form may be found under the Parent Center/ Student Services/Health Services/Medication Administration/consent forms on the Home page of the LPS web site. All medications must be in the original, labeled packaging from the pharmacy. A physician’s prescription is required for all medications provided to students, with the single exception of the “formulary” products described below.
THE FORMULARY MEDICATION option allows the health office to give limited doses (no more than 5 doses in 30 days) of acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) to your student. This requires a signed parent/guardian consent form only (no doctor’s prescription required). These forms will be sent in the summer packet or may be obtained from the health office. They may also be found following the same prompters as described for the parent/guardian consent forms noted above.
IMMUNIZATIONS AND PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS – Nebraska law requires a Kindergarten and 7th grade physical. Immunizations are required for school entry:
Every student is required to provide evidence of the following immunizations with the proper intervals for best immunity:
- 3 doses of DTP, DtaP, or Td vaccine. A 10 year Tdap is required for 7th graders

- 2 doses of MMR (measles, Mumps, rubella) vaccine
