Welcome to the Lakes Elementary Health Room!
Please contact the Health Room if you have any important information regarding your child's health or have questions regarding immunization requirements, medication policies, or any other concerns.
Life Threatening Health Conditions: Many students have health conditions such as bee sting or peanut allergies, severe asthma, diabetes, seizures, or heart conditions that may cause a life threatening emergency during the school day. These students must have a plan including medication and/or treatment orders in place prior to the first day that they will attend school. Please contact the Health Room for the necessary forms or information.
Are your kids ready for school? To attend school in Washington, students must show that they are fully immunized, or file an exemption with the school district. Make sure that your children are up-to-date on their immunizations.
Reminder about Medications: All medications that need to be given at school, including prescription and over-the-counter medications (medications like Tylenol, Ibuprofen, even cough drops), must be accompanied by an Authorization for Administration of Medication at School form. This form must be signed by both the parent and the physician/dentist. Medication cannot be given to your child without this completed form. Authorization forms need to be updated at the start of each new school year. Forms can be obtained by calling the Health Room.
Vision and Hearing: If you have concerns about your child's vision or hearing, please contact the Health Room.
Emergency Contact Information: Please keep yours and your emergency contact's information up-to-date with the front office. It is extremely important that we have a way to reach you!
