Parent Help Section

Do I need a Medication Packet for my student/child?

Parents must complete the Medication Authorization Packet to ensure the school can safely administer their child's prescribed medications. This packet includes detailed instructions, consent forms, and a section for healthcare providers to provide necessary medical information and dosage instructions.

Does my student/child need to update their immunization records and get vaccinations?

Louisiana state policy mandates that all students must be up-to-date on required vaccinations to attend school. Parents must submit an updated immunization record as proof of compliance with these requirements. This policy helps ensure the health and safety of all students by preventing the spread of infectious diseases. For more information, click the link below.

Strep Throat/Bacterial Infections

If your child has strep throat or another bacterial infection, they should stay home until they have been on antibiotics for at least 24 hours and have permission from your healthcare provider to return to school. Please seek medical attention when your child is sick and follow your healthcare provider's recommendations on returning to school and other activities.
