Welcome to Barneveld Schools! Chelsea Olday, the School District Nurse, along with Renee Meyer, Health Aide, oversees the health of all students from the Early Childhood Program to the Seniors in high school.
The Barneveld School District has many personnel who are First Aid and CPR trained.
Medication to be given at school:
At times a student may need to take Tylenol, Ibuprofen or Benadryl (for example) here at school. In this case, we keep the medication locked in the health office and record all occasions that it is taken. You must fill out and sign the "Medication Authorization" form and provide the medication. If it is a prescription medication, the physician needs to sign the form also (these may be faxed to school from the clinic office at 608-924-1646). All medication must be in its original container.

When to keep your child home from school:
As a parent, you may have to make a difficult decision as to whether to send your child to school when they do not feel good. If your child has a TEMPERATURE of 100°, VOMITING, DIARRHEA, or RASHES, keep your child at home. Students need to be fever free without medication for 24 hours and also do not have any vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours prior to returning to school. It is better for your child and it protects the other children if you keep them home for 24 hours after symptoms have disappeared. If your child is ill or if an accident requires absence, notify your child’s school as to the reason, i.e. (broken bones, strep throat, etc.).
