Medication kept in clinic:

Any over the counter medication (Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Midol, etc) to be administered at school should be brought in a new unopened container by the parent or student with the completed and signed Medication Authorization form. A separate medication authorization form is required for EACH medication brought to school by the parent. Prescription medication must be in its original prescription bottle with the original label attached and brought in by the parent, with a completed form and any doctor instructions. We do not keep any “stock” medication in the clinic to give to students.


Individual Health Care Plans

If your child has a medical condition such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, or severe allergies (that may require epinephrine administration), medical forms must be completed by their primary care provider. If they carry any medication and self-administer the medication here at school (or keep it in their backpack, etc) their care provider must state that on the form. Links to each form are below.

a. Asthma Action Plan

b. Diabetic Medical Management Plan (DMMP)

c. Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan

d. Seizure Action Plan

e. Medication Self Administration Form


Immunizations/Vaccines

Transfer students must show immunization documentation when registering at BHS. Parents of transfer students are welcomed to visit the clinic for clarification of any health concerns or policies that may be different from their previous school district. Current students, please bring in updated immunization records whenever a new immunization is given.
