     If your student has a severe allergy, asthma, diabetes, seizures or other chronic health condition which may require medication or special care during school hours, we recommend you and your healthcare provider complete and sign a Health Care Plan available on the FCBOE website or from your school nurse.

      • The parent or legal guardian must complete and sign a School Medication Authorization for all medications (prescription and over-the-counter) given at school. For prescription medications, a duly-licensed, Georgia physician must also complete and sign the School Medication Authorization or Health Care Plan available on the FCBOE website or from your school nurse.

      • A parent/legal guardian or other designated adult must bring all medication, accompanied by the School Medication Authorization or Health Care Plan, to the school clinic unless special permission given by the principal or school nurse.

      • All over-the-counter medications and prescription medications must be FDA approved and in their original containers with unexpired dates and labeled in English. Prescription medications must be clearly labeled with the physician's name, medication’s name, strength, dosage, date, time for administration, and dispensing pharmacy. Parent/Guardian must provide over-the-counter medications to the clinic.

      • If your student has a life-threatening condition (i.e. asthma, diabetes, or severe allergy), permission may be granted to carry the medication (such as inhaler, glucose tablet, Epi-pen, or internal Insulin pump) on his or her person from the student's physician and parent/guardian on the School Medication Authorization or Health Care Plan.

Tips For Preventing Colds & The Flu

  • Click Here for Health Care Plan

    You can help prevent winter illness in your family with these cold & flu fighting tips from the CDC and other health experts. Use these tips as a checklist for a season of fewer sick days for you and your kids

     

    1. Stay Home If You're Sick! This is important to prevent the spread of cold & flu germs.

    2. Keep Your Hands Clean. You never know what germs you may pick up throughout the day. Wash your hands often, especially before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or using the bathroom. Use hand sanitizer when soap & water is not available.

    3. Cover Your Nose & Mouth for Coughs & Sneezes. If tissue is not available for you to cough or sneeze into, do it into your upper sleeve or into the bend of your elbow. Do not sneeze or cough into your hands!

    4. Don't Touch Your Eyes, Nose or Mouth. Germs can easily infiltrate your system when you touch your face.

    5. Get Plenty of Rest. Lack of sleep & high stress levels leave you susceptible to getting sick. Adults need at least 7 hours and children EVEN MORE.

    6. Avoid Unnecessary Close Contact. A person can spread flu germs a full day before exhibiting symptoms, and then up to 5 days after that. If you're sick, avoid close contact with others.

    7. Eat Plenty of Fruits & Veggies. Vitamins & minerals found in fruits & veggies help build your immune system against germs.

    8. Get Fresh Air & Exercise. It's a myth that low temperatures cause cold & flu. The culprit is increased contact with greater numbers of people. Go outside for a walk & get away from the germ-bearers.
