The clinic provides a vital service for our students at OPES. We always extend an open door policy for students, parents, teachers, and staff. We also realize that when a student is in the clinic, they are missing valuable classroom time. If we feel that a child is “visiting” the clinic more often than needed we will speak to the teacher and/or the parent. We want your kids to be “Wild about Learning” and make the best of their classroom time.
Please remember that new MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION forms must be filled out for all “over the counter” and “prescription medications”. This includes anything from inhalers to Tylenol to chapstick. If you are in doubt please call us or email the clinic. We will be happy to answer any questions. If you send in Hand Sanitizer for your child’s classroom, please make sure it contains at least 60% alcohol and it is “frangrance free” because of children with allergies. Thank you!
We can administer medications during school hours. However, we do not keep stock medication in the clinic. You may send in any “over the counter” medication but it must be in the original container and be accompanied by a signed Medical Authorization Form. Over the counter medications include but are not limited to, chapstick, sunscreen, cough drops, antacids, etc… The policy for prescription medication is the same.
