Health RegulationsPublic schools are required to have on file immunizations records for each pupil for diphtheria-tetanus (DT), whooping cough, measles (rubella and rubella), mumps, oral polio, Hepatitis B and Chicken Pox. A parent may also comply with Ohio law by filing a written objection to these immunizations with the Board of Education.
The Board encourages all students to attend school regularly. Students with certain illness or disabilities may need to take medication during the school day. Students who require medication at school, including prescription AND over-the-counter medication must have a completed physician medication form and a parent medication consent form on file at the school office. Inhalers are permitted to be carried providing a current doctor’s authorization is on file in the school office. Cough drops can be carried and taken by the student when necessary. Medication will be given only from original and properly labeled containers. Physician forms and parent consent forms must be completely filled out and renewed at the start of each school year or with any changes such as dosage adjustment or a change in attending physicians. These procedures will help ensure the safety of all students. Thank you for your cooperation.
