NEW Immunization Requirements Effective August 2016, the State of Ohio is requiring all 7th Grade students to have the Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis booster (Tdap) and the Meningococcal immunization. If your child has already received these immunizations, please ask your Pediatrician for a copy of your child’s immunization record for their school health records. (Please note, a second dose of the Meningococcal immunization will be required before 12th grade.)
The Lake County General Health District will provide childhood immunizations for $5.00 per vaccine, not to exceed $20.00 a family per visit. Immunizations are available to those with or without insurance. Their phone number is 440-350-2254 to call for an appointment.
MEDICATION AT SCHOOL
If your child needs medication at school, please contact the EMS Clinic at 440-918-8971. Over-the-Counter Medication can be administered with parent permission. If your child needs a Prescription Medication at school, this will require Physician and parent written permission. Per School Policy, Medications must be delivered to school and picked up by an adult, in the original bottle/ container.
Medication forms can be downloaded from the Willoughby- Eastlake Website (under Parents, Health Services, Medication Administration, then select the type of form). You can also contact the clinic for forms, if you do not have computer access.
There is valuable Health Information on the Willoughby- Eastlake City Schools Website. Look under the Parents section, then Health Services section. Not sure if you should send your child to school? There is a section with Absence Guidelines. Have questions about common Communicable Diseases of school- aged children? There is a section for that- including information on Head Lice, Strept Throat, Fifth Disease (Slap Face), and Impetigo. As always, you can contact the School Nurse, if you have any questions.
