Health Room Reminder:
Keeping your child well and safe is our top priority at Elk Ridge. The nursing staff is happy to help in any way necessary to keep our students healthy. Please remember that our school policy does not allow any medications, including cough drops, inhalers, nasal sprays or eye drops to be carried by students. Please do not send any medications, prescription or over-the-counter, in your child's backpack. It has been our experience that our students sometimes enjoy sharing with their friends. Sharing medications, however, could become a very serious safety issue. If your child’s doctor prescribes a medication that is needed during school hours, please contact the school nurse to make arrangements to deliver the medication along with specific doctor’s orders. We ask that any over the counter medications be administered at home, by parents. As always, thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students happy, healthy and safe!
