Just a reminder concerning the Litchfield Elementary School District's Medication Policy:
All prescription medication prescribed by your child's doctor must have a written doctor's order [consent for giving medication at school] form signed and returned to the school before that medication will be given by school personnel. The medication must be brought to school in a PROPERLY LABELED CONTAINER FROM THE PHARMACY. ALL medication MUST BE CARRIED TO AND FROM THE NURSE'S OFFICE BY A PARENT OR ADULT. This includes inhalers, prescriptions and over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol and cough drops. State law requires ALL medication is to be in a locked cabinet when on campus.
Also, if your child is ill, PLEASE do not send them to school. They will just feel miserable while placing other students and staff at risk to become ill. If your child is ill or has a fever, you will be phoned to pick them up from school. If your child has a temperature of 100.0 degrees or higher, they will be sent home from school. If a student's temperature reaches 101.0 or greater, they need to be "TEMP. FREE" for 24 hours before they may return to school.
Please make sure you have the Over the Counter Medication form completed in case your child is in need of Tylenol, cough drops, etc.
If you have any questions please contact the WTLC.
