No student will be allowed to attend school if any immunization is past due.

New students must present immunization records at the time of registration that comply with Missouri state law requirements.

Can I send medications to school with my child?
STUDENT MEDICATIONS

Students needing to take any medications (prescriptions or over-the-counter) at school must have a new medication authorization form on file for the upcoming school year. All medications must be in a properly labeled bottle and kept at the nurse’s office. Students are not allowed to take any medications (including Tylenol, cough drops, or other over-the-counter medications) to school without proper paperwork being on file at the nurse’s office. Students are not allowed to carry any medication with them at school or to and from school. Students may carry an inhaler, Epi-pen, or other medical device authorized by law only if signed authorization and release forms from their physician and parent are on file at the nurse’s office, and only if the student can demonstrate proper usage to the school nurse and comply with additional requirements under law and/or Board policy. For students with serious health care concerns, an Individualized Health Care Plan or other appropriate plan should be on file. Such plans should be updated each school year.
