Sick Children...Send to School or Stay Home?

Deciding when a child is too sick to go to school can be a difficult decision for parents to make.  When trying to decide, use these guidelines AND seek the advice of your health care provider.

Dispensing Medication at School 

Links to the required forms are below.  Please print out, complete, and return the applicable forms to the clinic so that we can administer medication (prescription and/or over the counter) to your child during the school day.  The State of Michigan requires that these forms be on file with the child's school before any medication can be dispensed by the school.

Medication Administration Authorization Form

Self-Administration/Self-Possession of Medication

Medications should be picked up on the last day of school.  They cannot be sent home with your child.  Any medications not picked up will be disposed of in an appropriate manner.
