End of Year Medication pick up notice
Parents,
If your child has medication in the nurse’s office at school, you will not be able to get the “bus medications” from your child’s bus driver.  You will be able to pick up all medications from your school’s office for up to 30 minutes after the students are released on Friday June 15th. The additional dates for medication pick up are:
Helen Haller Elementary: Monday the 18th & Tuesday the 19th during office hours (9:00am-12:00 and 1:00-3:00pm).  
Greywolf Elementary: Monday the 18th & Tuesday the 19th  between 11:00am-2:00pm. 
Sequim Middle SchoolMonday the 18th & Tuesday the 19th  between 1:00-3:00pm. 
Since we cannot hold medications over the summer, any that are left after June 20th will be discarded.

A new medication authorization form, completed by the parent and licensed healthcare provider, is required each school year. All forms are now available on the Sequim School District home page>Departments>Health Services (forms). You can also get them from your school office.

Health Conditions
If your child has a potentially
life threatening health condition, we need a new care plan and if needed, an authorization for your child to have a medication at school, each school year. The school lists most life threatening health conditions as asthma with a rescue inhaler, allergy with an EpiPen prescribed, seizures, diabetes with insulin and heart conditions.

Any students in the district who currently have a care plan or Authorization for Medication on file, will receive all required forms by mail after the 2nd week of July.

The forms must be completed & signed by parent and licensed health care provider (LHCP) and received in your child’s school health room prior to classes starting on the first day of school. If an emergency medication is prescribed, they need to have the medication on the bus as well.

Please be aware that the forms can be found under each health concern in this webpage under  >Parent forms for Student Health Conditions. 

If your child has had an emergency medication in the past, but you feel they no longer need it, then we have to have a LHCP note stating that they no longer need the medication at school.

The School Nurse will be available during regular school hours starting August 27, 2018. Please call Sonja at 360-477-7728, with any questions or concerns.
