The Flu:  A Guide for Parents


Important information for parents and guardians:

 

Required Immunizations:

Indiana State law requires all students to have a current immunization statement on file with the school. According to the Indiana State Department of Health, all incoming Kindergarten and/or 1st graders are required to receive 3 Hepatitis B immunizations, 5 DTaP immunizations, 4 Polio immunizations, 2 MMR immunizations, 2 Varicella immunizations, and 2 Hepatitis A immunizations prior to starting school. All 6th graders are required to receive the Tdap and Meningococcal immunizations prior to the beginning of 6th grade, and the second dose of Varicella if not already completed. All incoming seniors are required to receive the second dose of the Meningococcal vaccine and two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine  prior to the beginning of their senior year.

Parents should call their family's physician or the Putnam County Health Department at (765) 658-2782 to make appointments before school starts.

2018-2019 Immunization Requirements



Medications:  


We strongly recommend medications be given at home when at all possible. Students are not permitted to carry prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication while on the school bus or at school. Exceptions will be made if parents provide the school with a signed statement from physician indicating the student may carry an inhaler, EpiPen, or insulin at school. It is strongly recommended that parents or guardians bring in and pick up all prescription and OTC medications to be given at school.

No medications will be given if sent in unlabeled containers. Medications must be in original bottle with the child's name written on it and accompanied by instructions from parent giving school permission to administer the medication during school hours.

Prescription medications must be in the original bottle with the name of the child, as well as, the type and dosage of the medication clearly visible.  The medication label must match the physician's order, and the time of day medications are to be administered must also be on the label. Medications not picked up at the end of the school year will be disposed of.

With the advent of online registration, it is important that the parent or guardian fill out online registration forms and not the student where medications are concerned.

Health Conditions:

If your child has any diagnosed health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, or allergies requiring an EpiPen, it is very important to call or come in and meet with your school nurse at the beginning of the school year, or anytime your child has a change in condition.

Mandatory Hearing and Vision Testing:

Hearing tests will be given yearly to students in grades 7 and 10 and/or by the request of a student or teacher. Vision tests will be given yearly to students in grades K, 3, 5, and 8 and/or by the request of a student or teacher. Parents who do not want their child tested, please send in a written note stating that request.
