Mill Creek Towne's Health Room
Our Health Room is staffed daily by a School Health Room Technician, in addition to a School Community Health Nurse, on a regular basis. We provide first aid during school on an as-needed basis, administer medications, and maintain health records, which include immunization records, physicals, and screenings for each student.
Please provide the main office with current phone numbers and parents/guardians and emergency contacts. Include cell, work, and home phone numbers. In addition, please inform the health room of any health conditions, medications, or communicable diseases as they occur, so that we may more efficiently address your child's needs.
Medications in School
Medication forms are required for any medications to be given in school. IMPORTANT: These forms MUST be signed by both the parent and the health care provider. All medications must be brought to the health room by an adult, properly labeled by a pharmacist, in the original container, and consistent with the physician's order. This is for both prescription and over-the-counter medications. Medication forms are available from the Health Room or at the following link:
Head lice occur commonly in children of all backgrounds and socioeconomic groups. It spreads quickly and easily in schools, day care centers, camps, and other areas where children congregate. By working together we can prevent the spread and repeated re-infestations of head lice.
- School identification of head lice - students are excluded from school until treated with a medicated shampoo or cream, and there are no live ilce or nits within a ¼ inch of the scalp.
- Home identification - Please notify the health team if your child has head lice and accompany your child to health room after treatment.
Following treatment at home, students are re-inspected upon return to school. He/she will be re-admitted only if there are no live lice or nits within ¼ inch of the scalp.
