OUR GOAL IS TO KEEP OUR STUDENTS HEALTHY AND READY TO LEARN

Our nursing staff partners with families and our community to ensure that our students are healthy, safe, and ready to learn.
 
When needed, each of our schools has a dedicated nurse or health room assistant who is ready to assist your child with:

  • Illness
  • Injuries
  • Rest and Recuperation
  • Medication
  • Treatment

If your student has a health condition or concern, please contact your school’s nurse.

Medicine at School

By law, for a student to receive medications at school, we must first have a signed order from the student's licensed health care provider (LHP).

Parent information:

Medication at School Medicamentos en la Escuela

If your child no longer needs a rescue medication (albuterol, epinephrine, seizure medication) during the school day, their Licensed Healthcare Provider (LHP) will need to fill out a medication discontinuation letter.  Please return this letter to your child’s school nurse.  

Woodland Public Schools Medication Discontinuation Letter

In adherence with our drug free schools policy, the parent or guardian must be the person transporting the medication to and from the school. Once a signed order is on file, and the medication is at the school, the medication may be administered at school. Staff can administer daily/scheduled medications, or medications that are administered as needed (such as Tylenol).

When is it best to keep my child at home?

You, as the parent, are the best judge of whether your child is too ill for school.
There are however certain guidelines. Please read and follow this guide. Sending an ill child to school is counterproductive to effective learning and puts other students at risk.
