Student Medical Issues

If your child has a serious medical issue, please contact us before the school year begins.  Please realize that the health information which you record on school forms may not reach us immediately thus it is very important that you contact us by phone.  It is our goal to provide a safe learning environment and be prepared to care for your child on the first day he/she attends school. With your permission, we will make a medical plan for your child that will be distributed to pertinent school personnel. It is important that staff members be informed on how to care for your child at school. If your child will require a medical procedure or medication, a form will need to be obtained from the school and then completed by you and your physician. Staff members will also need to be trained on how to administer the medication or procedure. It is imperative that you notify us of serious health issues as soon as possible to allow time to obtain the appropriate forms from your physician and to train our staff to care for your child.

Medication

If your child must have medication of any type given during school hours, including over-the-counter medications, an administration of medication form must be completed by you and your physician.  Please see the administration of medication form for a detailed explanation of our school medication policy. 

Vision / Hearing Screenings

The early detection and treatment of vision/hearing disorders will give your child a better opportunity to develop educationally, socially, and emotionally. The school screening is not an eye/ear examination, does not take the place of an examination, and will not detect all potential problems or diseases. If you feel that your child may have a vision/hearing problem, you should make an appointment with a physician regardless of the school’s screening results. The school screening is only meant to aid in the detection of general vision and hearing problems. 

All Pre-K, K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th & 11th grade students will receive a vision screening.  If your child does not pass the screening, a referral letter will be sent home. Please make an appointment with an optometrist and take the referral letter with you. The optometrist should complete the eye report and it should be returned to school.  If you have any questions regarding your child’s results or need financial assistance in obtaining an eye exam/glasses, please contact us.

All Pre-K, K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 9th & 11th grade students will receive a hearing screening. If your child does not pass the hearing screening, a second screening will be done in 4-6 weeks per the Ohio Department of Health guidelines. A referral letter will be sent home if your child fails the second screening. Please make an appointment with an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist and take the referral letter with you. The physician should complete the hearing report and it should be returned to school.  If you have any questions regarding your child’s results, please contact us.

Scoliosis Screenings

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that commonly occurs during the adolescent growth spurt. A specialized orthopedic nurse will screen students for scoliosis in grades 7 and 9.  If signs of scoliosis are detected, a referral letter will be sent home. If you receive a referral, please contact the child's physician for evaluation, have the referral form completed by the physician and return it to school. If your student is currently under active treatment for a postural problem, or if you do not want your student screened, please contact the nurse at their school to complete and sign a form to be kept on file.

Immunization Requirements 

Ohio Law requires that students meet certain immunization requirements to attend school. A complete immunization record or proof of being “in process” of obtaining the required shots at appropriate time intervals must be on file within 14 days of school entry. Students not meeting these requirements will be excluded from school 14 days after school entry per Ohio State Law.   Preschool students may attend school for a period of 30 days pending the completion of these requirements. It is our goal to avoid excluding your child from school.  Please review the required school immunizations on this website and contact us if you have any questions.

Please contact your family physician or the Warren County Health Department at 513-695-1468 to arrange for your child to receive the required immunizations.

If your child cannot receive these vaccinations due to medical reasons, religious convictions or reasons of conscience, please contact the school nurse at  your child's building. Per Ohio Revised Code and school board policy, a student may be exempted from immunization if a parent or guardian objects for good cause, including religious conviction, or if there is a medical condition that prohibits immunization.
