Cindy Sweigart RN
Our nurse is available to administer first aid, provide temporary care for ill children, and dispense medication. However, you know your children better than anyone. If your child has a fever over 101 degrees, please keep him/her home. Of course, if children are feeling very ill without a fever, they should also stay home.
Medications are usually justified in some chronic health conditions or short term illnesses. According to the Cherry Creek School District policy, prescription medications will be administered only on the written orders of a physician. Nonprescription medications require a signed note from a parent or guardian. Prescription medication must be in the original container appropriately labeled by the pharmacy or physician stating the name of the student, the
medication, the dosage, and the time the medication is given. All medications must be brought to the school nurse in the original container accompanied by the appropriate signed permission form. The permission form to administer medication at school is available in the school clinic.
