    Health Record Update 

    Each year, every returning LPS student must have a Health Update Form completed by their parents. This form also gives consent for the nurse to administer Tylenol. (Link for the form is to the right.)  If your child will be taking medication other than Tylenol at school, please also complete a Medication Permission Form. If your child has a medical diagnosis of Asthma, Diabetes, Seizures, or a Severe Food Allergy please complete an Action Plan and obtain a physician signature.

     

     

    Junior Class Vaccine Clinic

    Prior to starting their senior year all students must turn in proof of the required Meningococcal Conjugate (MCV4) immunization received after their 16th birthday to the school nurse. Proof of immunization may either be faxed or emailed to the nurse.  If you are unsure if your student still needs this vaccine or needs to turn in proof of vaccine please call the school nurse.  

     

    Clay County Health Department will be offering a vaccine clinic at LHS on February 9th to provide the meningococcal vaccine along with other recommended vaccines.  For more ionformation regarding the clinic and to sign up please call the nurse's office at 736-7040.
