Contacts

Please make sure that the office has your correct contact information at all times. If an emergency should occur, we will need it to get a hold of you about your child. 

Medications

The Mountainair School Board policy (4.26.9) states: nurse with medicine.jpg

As stated by the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on School Health:  “Ideally, all medication should be given at home.  It is recognized that at the present time many children are able to attend regular schools because of the effectiveness of medication in the treatment of chronic disabilities and illnesses.”  (Pediatrics 61:115-116, 1978)

Rarely should it be necessary for any medicine to be given to a student by a school employee during the school day.  However, should the physician deem it necessary in order to maintain the student’s health status and prevent prolonged absences, the following procedure is mandatory by State law.

All medications brought to the attention of school personnel must be channeled through the school nurse.
