A.R.S. 15-803 requires the parent, guardian, or person in loco parentis of a child to provide the school with an immunization history at the time of enrollment. This history is to include the month, day and year for each vaccination. Parents must show proof of immunization; and children will not be permitted to attend classes until the immunization history has been provided.
A physician must authorize all prescription medication. Medication must be in the original container. The container must be clearly labeled. Medication must be brought to the school by the parent or other parent-disgnated adult. Along with a physician’s written order, there must be parental written permission for each prescription medication. Students are not allowed to carry medication to administer to themselves, except for an asthma inhaler or an Epi pen as directed to do so by a physician. Teachers are not permitted to hold or administer medication to students at school.
It is of vital importance to keep students' emergency card current. The following information is needed:
1. Current home address and telephone number, or the number of the closest neighbor who will contact the parent.
2. Place of employment and phone number of both parent/guardians.
3. Name of a person who is responsible for the child in the event parents cannot be located immediately in the event of an emergency.
Ailments such as diabetes, epilepsy, cardiac diseases, asthma, and allergies are some of the diseases that should
be noted on health records and discussed with the school health assistant at the school.
