Health Forms

Creating and maintaining a safe campus that supports the health and welfare of all members of the LJCDS community is of utmost importance.  
 
The Health and Emergency Form is required for all students every year. Other required health forms for new students are listed below. Returning families can check requirements for physicals and immunizations based on grade level. If applicable, allergy and medication forms can be found in the links below.
 
Mandatory health forms must be completed and uploaded before students can attend classes and athletic practices if they start before the first day of school.

    It is preferable that a second prescription inhaler, epinephrine auto-injector, additional insulin and diabetic supplies or other prescribed medication be kept in the school in case the first is lost or left at home. 
     
    Both the student and the parent/guardian must sign and submit the form every year. The form can be found in the link based on the student’s grade.
  • Prescription Medication Administration Release Form

    Students are not allowed to carry medications of any kind without the written permission of the parent/guardian and school nurse.
     
    Students taking prescription medications during school hours will need to have a Prescription Medication Administration Release Form filled out in its entirety prior to the start of school each school year. The form can be found in the link based on the student’s grade.
     
    No medication will be allowed or given at school until this form is submitted, even if the medication was given at school the previous year. Prescription medications administered during school hours need to be:
    • In the original prescription container
    • In a Ziploc bag 
    • Labeled with the student’s name, grade, parents'/guardians’ names, two emergency phone numbers and a current picture of the child
    • Be sure to take the prescription medication form to the physical as the form must be signed by your child’s physician
    • All medications must be picked up by the end of the school year, or they will be discarded. 
  • Over-the-Counter Medication Administration Release Form

    Over-the-counter medications not listed on the Health and Emergency Form require additional consent via the Over-the-Counter Medication Administration Release Form. Medications must be in the original container and in a bag properly labeled with the student’s name, grade, parents'/guardians’ names and emergency phone numbers. 
     
    It is at the discretion of the school nurse or designated health provider to administer any over-the-counter medications. It is best to give any medication at home prior to arrival at school. The first dose of any medication should never be given at school. All medications must be picked up by the end of the school year, or they will be discarded
