Welcome to the Oakwood Schools District School Health Services website. Oakwood has three full time nurses serving the school district.
As school nurses, we provide first aid, care for chronic health conditions, provide health education, maintain health records and immunization records. We want to provide students and families with a safe and healthy school environment.
Please contact us any time with any questions or concerns.
24 Hour Guideline
A student with a temperature of 100 degrees or greater, diarrhea (3 or more watery stools in a 24 hour period) and/or vomiting, may not return to school until they have been fever free, no diarrhea and/or free from vomiting for 24 hours with no medication or medical intervention. If a student is started on an antibiotic for a communicable illness/infection (strep, impetigo, etc.), they must be on the antibiotic for 24 hours before returning to school. Information sources: CDC, AAP, Dayton Children’s Medical Center.
Medications at School
If your student will require any prescription medication, over-the-counter medication, vitamins or herbal supplements during school hours you and your licensed health care provider must each complete a Medication Administration Form. These forms are located on our Forms page.
All medications listed above require a licensed health care provider signature and parent signature to be administered at school. All medications/vitamins/herbal supplements MUST be in the original container with the students name and a label that matches the information the licensed health care provider provided on the Medications Administration Form. There are no exceptions. We will not administer any medication without the correct forms on file, and if a student is caught with medication at school they will be given consequences according to school policy.
Please contact your child's school nurse with any questions or concerns.
