If you aren’t sure if your child should stay home or attend school, you can refer to this chart provided by the Lenawee County Health Department:
|Managing Communicable Diseases in Schools|
|Communicable Diseases Information: When to Keep Children Home|
Your family physician can also guide you in regards to a decision regarding your child’s school attendance.
If your child needs to receive medication during the school day, a Medication Authorization Form must be on file for your student. This is not the same as the emergency contact sheet.
School personnel can only dispense medication to students who have a completed Medication Authorization form on file.
This is required for over–the–counter medications such as Tylenol, Motrin, and Benadryl as well as prescribed medications.
Parents may sign the form for over–the–counter medications and return it to the office. Physicians are required to sign the form for prescribed medications and can fax the form to 517–265–5635.
Forms are available in each of the offices or can be downloaded below.
