Medications

Forms you may need for dispensing of medication include:

Immunization Requirements

Immunization requirements for students enrolled in public or private schools in the state of Kentucky have been updated effective for the 2011-12 academic year. This is the first immunization update to this regulation since 2002. This update is in response to the addition of several recommended vaccines to the Immunization Schedule for kindergarten and grade 6 as published by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

Prescription and non-prescription medications are not allowed on the Daviess County Public School System buses at any time for any reason except in unique situations in which a child's health is dependent upon long-term medication or emergency medication.

School Health

The Owensboro Catholic Schools and Owensboro Medical Health System have partnered to provide a School Nurse and Health Coordinator. Their responsibilities include supervising the health rooms at each of the OCS campuses and overseeing the health and well-being of students and staff.

Throughout the school year, health and wellness education is offered to promote the health and safety of your child. The Health Room Technicians at each school are available to provide comfort measures, first-aid, and medications as required.

Guidelines have been established to ensure safe and accurate medication administration. Parents are encouraged to contact the Health Room Technician with questions or health concerns regarding their child.
