Omega School does provide a school clinic for our students. Mrs. Linda Jones is our school nurse. Each parent will be requested to complete a personal data sheet for their child that will be placed on file. Please indicate if your child has a specific medical concern that we need to be aware of even if your child does not take medicine at school for this condition. All prescription and non-prescription drugs must be properly labeled with instructions for use and must be in the original container. No medication will be given to students without prior parental consent. All medication should be turned into the clinic upon arrival to school. No medication will be dispensed in the classroom. Please make sure to provide Mrs. Jones with an inhaler if your child has been diagnosed with asthma and provided one by your family doctor. We strongly recommend that we have an available inhaler even if your child has not had an attack in some time. We CANNOT allow your child to use another person’s inhaler even in the case of an emergency. PLEASE make sure we have one in our nurse’s office.
The schools are no longer providing over-the-counter medications (such as Tylenol, Benadryl, etc.) to students. Any over-the-counter medication that your child might need to take during school hours must be provided by the parent/guardian. All over-the-counter medications provided to the school must be in the original bottle, unopened, and sealed. This is for your child’s protection.
All students must comply with the state regulations regarding immunizations schedule. Here are the links to the immunization schedule in English and in Spanish.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s vaccination, please call your child’s healthcare provider.
