SWINE FLU -- The Cashmere School District has a plan in place and ready to activate IF there is a confirmed case of swine flu. We are asking all parents to remind their children basic illness preventions by coughing into their arm, not to share water bottles and practice good hand washing skills. If your child is showing flu like symptoms such as fever, cough and sore throat, please contact your physician. Thank you for your assistance and please feel free to call if you have questions and/or concerns. Susan M. Day RN, District Nurse 782-2211
Over the counter and prescription medication may be administered for up to 15 days only with a parent and doctorís signature. If over-the-counter and/or prescription medication is necessary for longer than 15 days, we will need the parent and doctor signature accompanied by doctorís instructions on how to administer the medication.
ALL medication must be in the original container and if a prescription the studentís name must be on the label.
Request to administer medication during the school is valid only for the current year and will only be valid for the dates indicated in writing on the request form. Forms are in the office during school hours.
