Lummi Nation School Medical Information
School Nurse contact information: 360-758-4369. Nurses@lummi-k12.org
To prevent the spread of disease, all students must be in compliance with scheduled immunizations or have a valid Physician signed exemption.
The law has changed starting in Fall of 2020; all students must provide immunization documentation from a physician. Students will NOT be allowed to attend school AT ALL, even distance learning, until immunizations are current or an exemption is provided to the school nurses. This must be done every year.
For more information please see the new law: https://www.doh.wa.gov/YouandYourFamily/Immunization/SchoolandChildCare/RuleChanges
Medications at School:
When possible, please give required medication at home. If it is not possible, the school nurse or trained staff member will administer the medication.
Medication at school must be accompanied by a legal guardian consent and physician’s order at the beginning of each year. No medications will be given without signed documentation by the physician and the guardian. It is the responsibility of the guardian to provide the medications and orders to the school. The medication forms are available on our website under the health tab and available in person or by fax.
**During distance learning we have no need to have medications at the school. Nursing staff will work with families to put medication orders in place during distance learning so that when we re-open we will be ready for all of our students to be in the building.
When we are able to re-open, students with known life-threatening illnesses will not be allowed to attend school until medications and orders are provided to the school. Please speak with the nurses regarding and we will be glad to assist with getting orders in place to minimize contact.
Nursing Contact information:
Medicine must be brought to the school by a parent or guardian.
Pandemic (COVID-19) Precautions:
Please do not send your student to school if you suspect they are ill or have been around anyone that is ill. We will be working hard to keep ALL of our students and staff safe and healthy.
Students will not be allowed to attend school with a fever, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, body aches or other symptoms associated with illness. If students are in quarantine/isolation determined by a doctor; a doctor note will be required for re-entry to school.
Guardians will be asked to pick up their student if these symptoms develop while the student is at school. Timely pick-up will be required to help ensure other students are kept safe. School transportation will not be available for sick children.
As we make plans to re-open school (at an undetermined time) the tentative plan is to screen students and staff at the door of the school with temperature checking and symptom questions. Social distancing and good hygiene practice will be used at the school to help our staff and students stay healthy. Other plans are still in development and information will be provided as we know more.
