At the High School level, students are encouraged to keep their inhalers in their possession at all times. With the school being as large as it is, it just makes sense for the students to have access to their emergency medication as quickly as possible. Epipens are kept in our Nurses' Office, but we ask that you provide your child with an extra one to keep with them if they are athletes or are involved in after-school activities. ALL other medications that need to be administered to your child during the school day must be brought into the Health Office by a parent!
Under MIAA rules, a student's physical exam is good for 13 months from the date of the exam; i.e. an exam performed on 9/1/2012 will be valid until 10/1/2013. Students who participate in sports need to have a valid physical exam on record here in our office that is current through their entire sport season. If your child's physical exam expires during the sport season, they will be exempt from play until a new physical exam is provided to us.
