May News from the Health Office

English|Español

Medication Reminder: All medications should be dropped off by a parent and not given to a student or put in their backpack. All medications need to be accompanied by a Medical Authorization Form. This includes all cough drops and any over-the-counter medications. If your child has expired medication, please come to the office to pick it up.  

New for 2018-2019 School Year:  If your child has asthma or an allergy, the Health Office will need an Asthma or Allergy Action Plan filled out by the physician in addition to the Medication Authorization Form.  Also, please fill out the Self-Carry Form if your child will be carrying an inhaler in their backpack.  Please feel free to stop by Health Office or call 847-472-3445 with any questions.

Dental Reminder For This Year

Dental Examination forms are due May 15, 2018 for current Kindergarten and 2nd grade students.

State of Illinois Vaccination Requirements

All students entering Kindergarten must have evidence of two varicella vaccinations and two MMR vaccinations prior to the first day of school.  

All students entering 6th grade must have evidence of a completed Hepatitis B vaccination series, a Tdap booster, two varicella vaccinations, two MMR vaccinations, and a dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine.

Health Information for 5th Grade students

A health packet was sent out this month for students that will be in 6th grade next year. This packet contained a copy of mandatory physical exam information, dental exam information and interscholastic athletics requirements.

All of the proper health forms are also available at the Brentwood Health Office. If you have any questions please call (847) 472-3445. Any completed physical exams may be turned in to the Brentwood Health Office before the end of the year. They will be forwarded to the Junior High. A completed physical exam must be turned in before students can compete in sports at the Junior High.

Staying Healthy at School

Spring is a season of change. The mornings are chilly and then warm up. Please make sure your child is adequately dressed to go outdoors for recess. Dressing in layers is a good idea. Spring colds and allergies can also affect your child. Please check your child before school. School District 59 policy states “children cannot come to school if they have a fever greater than 100 degrees. They must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication before they can return to school. Children should also stay home if they have vomiting, diarrhea, rash, excessive coughing, inflamed or reddened eyes, sore throat, or an earache.” When your child comes to school, he or she is expected to be able to participate in all activities including gym and recess. A doctor’s note is required to exclude your child from activities for 1 or more days. A signed parent note with reason for activity exclusion is acceptable for one day. If your child needs medication at school (including “over the counter” medication) the Medication Authorization form must be completed by your doctor. Parents must bring the medication to school. Medication must be in its original container and labeled with the child’s name.  

Extra Change of Clothes

Also, please make sure that your child has an extra change of clothes with them at school.  This holds true for all primary and intermediate grades KG-5th. Accidents due happen in the lunchroom and recess as well.  We have limited amount of clothing and sizes. Also, if your child does borrow clothes from school, kindly clean them and return them to the Health Office as soon as possible so other children can use them.
