Pacific School believes that an integrated and coordinated approach to education must include providing health information to students, parents, faculty, and staff.  Below is information we hope will assist families in remaining healthy and safe throughout the school year.

If your child is required by the doctor to take prescribed medication during the school day, or if you wish your child to take over-the-counter medicines, please follow these steps:

  • Complete the Request For Medication To Be Taken During School Hours, which can be found below.
  • Submit the completed form signed by your child’s doctor with the dose, schedule and method of administering the medication.
  • Keep prescription medication in the original container. Over-the-counter medication must be labeled with the child’s name, dosage, and doctor’s name and phone number.

Students may not carry medications, including  over the counter products such as cough drops or Tylenol in backpacks or on their person.  All medications must be locked up in the Health Office.

If your child is out sick, they need to be fever, vomit, and diarrhea free for 24 hrs. before they can return to school.  For additional information on please refer to our Guidelines for Exclusion/Return to School.
