Medicines and Illness

Parents are expected to notify Rose Academy of any medical condition or illness that would impact a student’s learning environment. All records are kept confidential in the student's school file and are not discussed or released without a Release of Information form completed by the parents.
If students require medication during the school day, parents must complete a Medication Permission Form at the front desk. Emergency medications, such as inhalers, can be carried with the child when required by a physician. All other medications must be labeled with the student’s name and be in the original bottle. Medicine will be stored in a locked safe in the school office.

Parents should keep sick children at home until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours. If a student becomes ill at school, the parents will be notified and asked to pick-up their child promptly. If a parent is unable to be reached, the emergency contacts in the student information sheet will be called.

In the event of an emergency the school will call 911 if a parent or emergency contact is unable to be located. Parents will be responsible for all resulting fees including ambulance, medication, and hospital stay.
