Admission Requirements 

Physical examinations are required for all students entering new to the school system at the pre-school level. Physical examinations are required yearly for all students enrolled in pre-school age programs. Children who do not meet this requirement will not be admitted to school unless they present proof of a confirmed doctor's appointment for the physical to be completed. If proof of the physical examination is not submitted within twenty (20) days after the date of examination, the student will be excluded from school. Parents should always be encouraged to complete all health requirements prior to the student's first day of school.

Accidents

School personnel will take every precaution to avoid accident or injury to the students. The principal will be notified immediately when a serious accident occurs. Parents will be notified of any serious accident, especially bumps or blows to the head.

An injured student will be taken to the school clinic if the nurse or clinic assistant is on duty. If the clinic is not staffed, the injured student will be taken to the school office.

School officials will follow the instructions listed on the student’s Emergency Medical Information Form. This form will be sent home in the school packet at the beginning of the school year and will remain on file for the duration of the school year. If any changes occur on this form, please inform the school office immediately. It may make a difference if your child should be ill or injured. A sample copy of the Student Emergency Information Form can be found on the website.

 

Chronic, Serious, or Altering Medical Conditions

If there should be a condition that meets these standards, it will be dealt with by the faculty and staff of Huber Heights City Schools, the parents, and any other relevant medical experts. A conference is the usual process. Call the school for more information.

 

Illness

In case of illness, the student will be given a clinic pass and sent directly to the clinic or office. The parent will be notified if the student is too ill to remain at school. If the parent cannot be contacted, the relative or neighbor listed on the Emergency Medical Information will be contacted.

 

Immunizations 

Students attending school must comply with all federal, state, and local immunization and health examination requirements. Parents are to provide the schools with evidence of the dates that students were properly immunized against diphtheria, pertussis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, rubeola, rubella, mumps and vericella. Pre-school students must also present evidence of the dates they received haemophilis B (HIB).

Evidence of immunization is required at the time of enrollment in school. If all immunizations are not completed, then written evidence that the student is in the process of receiving such immunization and that it will be completed within 14 days of entering school is required prior to enrollment. Students failing to be properly immunized may be excluded from school attendance.

If federal, state, or local requirements permit it, a student may be exempted from one or more of the immunizations by submitting a written statement from a doctor stating that the required immunization threatens the health and welfare of the student or by the parent completing an immunization objective form and agreeing to comply with the condition under which the exemption is granted.

 

Medical Conditions 

Please keep the staff and school nurse updated and aware of any medical conditions that may manifest themselves during the school year/day (i.e., food allergies, allergies, asthma, Epi-pen, seizures, diabetes, breathing treatments, other treatment, etc.)

In conjunction with medical conditions, please notify the clinic assistant and school secretaries on updated address changes, phone number changes, and emergency contact number changes in order for parent(s) and/or guardian(s) to be properly notified of a student illness or emergency.

*Epi-pen, inhalers, and other medication forms, along with the medication given must be at school by the first day of school.
