The Department of Education in collaboration with the Department of Public Health requires that all students entering 9th grade provide a health examination done with the past two years, Meningococcal Vaccine (one dose), and a Tdap vaccine booster. Students not in compliance with this Delaware State Regulation will be excluded from school.
New Student Requirements:
Students who are new to the Delaware Public School system must have a physical (within the last two years), up-to-date immunizations, and a TB screening or PPD (within the last 12 months). All documents must be received prior to your student starting school. This is a Delaware State law; if non-compliant your child will be excluded from school.
Emergency Cards: (click here)
At the beginning of each school year, students must have an updated emergency card. Please complete and return this card as soon as possible. In addition to providing us with pertinent medical and contact information, there is a section for signed permission allowing your student to receive over the counter medications such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and antacids. Without written consent, we will not be able to dispense these over the counter medications. This Emergency Card is needed for field trips and all off campus activities.

DIAA sports physicals (click here for DIAA form)
If your son/ daughter would like to participate in any of the ASPIRA athletic teams, you will need to complete a DIAA Sports Physical. These forms must be dated after April 1. Please turn in completed forms to the nurses' office or Athletic Director as soon as possible. Parents may drop the form off at the Main Office as well.

Medication at school: (click here for form)
Please keep in mind that all medication, prescription, and over the counter, must be dispensed in the nurses' office. In the interest of safety for our children, students are not permitted to carry medication. Emergency medications such as rescue inhalers, epi-pens, and insulin are the only exception. Medication must be brought to and from the nurses' office by a parent/ guardian. As per Delaware State law, all medications sent to the nurses' office must be in the original prescription or over the counter bottle. Please complete the attached medication request form if your student requires medication to be dispensed during school hours.

Chronic medical conditions: 
If your student has a chronic medical condition such as Asthma, Diabetes, seizure disorder, or food allergies, please contact the nurse to complete the appropriate Action Care Plan. These care plans enable us to provide a more individualized plan of action for your student in the event of a medical emergency.
