Medications

Over-the-Counter

Students must have an up-to-date data verification form on file each year regarding whether they are able to receive over-the-counter medications. These medications include acetaminophen, ibuprofen, hydrocortisone 1% topical cream, bacitracin, cough drops, and tums. These over-the-counter medications will be administered from our stock medications in each clinic, and dosage will be given according to the outside label of said medication.

All other medications

All other medications require a Medication Authorization form which can be found under the Medical Forms Section below. All medications that come into the clinic from home should be in their original packaging or prescription bottle with the student’s name and date of birth on the outside and not expired.

Any student with an EpiPen must fill out the Anaphylaxis Plan of Care found under the Medical Forms section.

If your child has a medical condition such as asthma, a severe allergy or another health-related condition that requires self-administration of medication, or needs to carry an emergency medication (Epipen, Diastat, Inhaler, Glucagon, etc.), please contact the clinic staff for the appropriate paperwork. For your child’s health and the safety of our students, clinic staff need to be aware of what medications are on a student and where they are located in the case of an emergency situation. It is always encouraged for the student to keep an extra dose in the clinic.

Chronic or serious conditions

If your child has any chronic or serious conditions, please alert the clinic staff so that we may work with you and your child’s teacher to keep your child healthy at school.

Important Grade Appropriate Information

All students in Preschool-5th Grade must have the FL Dept. of Health Form DH 3040 and the immunization certificate DH 680 from their pediatrician’s office and a copy of their birth certificate on file in the school office. Please note that students from out of state must provide their health and immunization records on the proper Florida forms (DH 3040 and DH 680). Students will not be allowed to attend class without these forms.

If you have a returning student in 1st – 5th Grade, the health records and birth certificate will already be on file in the Lower School Office. You do not need to resubmit these forms.

If you have a returning student entering Jr. Kindergarten or Kindergarten, a copy of your child’s birth certificate will already be on file; however, you will need to provide an updated FL Dept. of Health Form DH 3040 documenting a physical exam within the last year and a FL Immunization DH 680 Form.

If you have a returning student entering 7th grade, you must submit the immunization certificate DH 680 Form with administration of the Tdap vaccination noted.

If you have a NEW student entering Oak Hall in any grade, you will need to provide a FL Dept. of Health Form DH 3040 documenting a physical exam within the last year, a FL immunization DH 680 form, and copy of your child’s birth certificate to Oak Hall by Friday, August 5th.

All current sixth graders will have a scoliosis exam done in the Fall of the school year. If you wish for your child to opt out there will be a form sent out as we approach the date.

Student Health & Wellness

Services

Health Services

Oak Hall has two health clinics on campus. One is located in the Lower School to meet the everyday needs of our littlest Eagles, while the other is located centrally to our campus, in the administration building, for the rest of our students. Our clinics are managed by a team of trained health professionals, including an on-staff Registered Nurse, who are well-versed in both emergency and routine care. The health clinics are outfitted with emergency medical equipment, first aid supplies, and spaces for students to rest and recover as needed.

Counseling Services

With onsite school counselors, we are able to address the physical, mental, and emotional needs of all our students. Our counselors are located in the Upper School Suite and Middle School, sharing a satellite office in the Lower School. They not only serve our students but also work with faculty and staff to help provide ongoing training and support for our entire community. Counselors work diligently in partnership with our families to create a circle of care for the student. We strongly encourage every student to take advantage of the services and resources available to them at Oak Hall.
