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:

  • Medications- Any medications the student takes on a regular basis and any allergies they may have to medicines or other common items.
  • Photo Approval- From time to time, newspaper or television reporters may come to school and take pictures of school activities. In order for those pictures to be published, your approval must be on file. If you will not allow any photos of your child to be used, even within the classroom, please also notify your childs teacher.
  • Student Health- It is very important that we be told of any special medical conditions your child may have. Please supply us with any doctors or pharmacists instructions so that we can assist your child efficiently.

Medications

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.
