Student Emergency Cards
It is essential for the safety of the student that we have an up-to-date emergency card with up-to-date information. Emergencies can happen at any time and we must be able to contact parents or other caregivers. Each card must have local telephone numbers and permission for emergency treatment. Only people listed on this card and over the age of 18 are allowed to remove students from the school. On its two sides, pay special attention to these items:
When dispensing medications prescribed by a doctor to your student, Education Code, Section 49423 is very specific in the procedure that must be followed:
Not withstanding the provisions of Section 49433, any pupil which is required to take, during the regular school day, medication prescribed for him by a physician, may be assisted by the school nurse or other designated school personnel if the school district receives (1) a written statement from such physician detailing the method, amount, and time schedules by which such medication is to be taken and, (2) a written statement from the parent or guardian of the pupil indicating the desire that the school district assist the pupil in the matters set forth in the physicians statement.
Students are not allowed to bring over-thecounter medications to school, such as cough drops, cold remedies, pain medication, etc. All medications must be kept in the health aides office and be accompanied by a doctors note describing when and how the medication should be administered.
