Student Health & Wellness

  • Not feeling well?

    Please do not send your child to school if they have had a fever or have been vomiting within the previous 24 hours.

    Medications at school

    If your child has medication that needs to be taken during school hours, an adult must always be the one to bring this medication to school. The parent will need to fill out a form giving permission and specific instructions for administering the medication. All medication must come to school in its original labeled container. This is required for both prescription and non-prescription medication. All medication must be administered by the health aide. 

    If your child becomes sick or injured at school

    When your child becomes ill or is injured at school, we will call the parents to come and pick them up. It is very important that we have the name and telephone number of an emergency contact - someone who can pick up your child if you cannot be reached.


    Immunizations are required by state law. Students may not start the school year unless they have had at least the first vaccination in a series. 

    Vision screenings

    The state of Oregon requires students 7 and under have their vision testing before registering for school. Our district partners with the local Lions Club and the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation to provide vision screening exams to all elementary students.  

    Dental services

    Oregon also requires students to have a dental screening. Our district partners with the Community Health Centers of Lane County to perform dental screenings for our students. Additionally, more comprehensive exams, cleaning and treatments are also offered.
