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 it every time it is taken. You must fill out and sign the "Parent Medication Authorization" form and provide the medication.
If it is a medication prescribed by a physician, the physician must sign the
Prescribed Medication form. The form may be faxed to the school from the clinic office at 608-924-1646).
All medication must be in its original container. 

Forms needed for medications to be given at school

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

If your child tests positive for COVID-19, they should remain at home for five days after the onset of symptoms. When returning to school, students should remain masked through day 10. Barneveld School District can provide a rapid test for families missing tests for COVID-19.
