Does Your Child Wish to Bike to School?

Students who wish to bike to school need a bike permit. Parents may choose to allow students in grades 3-5 ride to school alone, but please remember that there are NO crossing guards. Students in grades K-2 must have a PARENT accompany the students on their ride to and from school. Click below for a bike permit application and a more detailed explanation of our bike safety rules.


Notes from the Nurse

If your child has allergies, asthma, diabetes or other medical condition, click here for more informaiton and health forms:

CCS Head Lice Policy:

Attached you will find the CCS head lice policy. As a district, we ask parents to be proactive and check their children often for head lice. I also check children brought to my attention by a parent, teacher, or other staff member. If head lice are found, I immediately notify the parent. A child does not need to stay home from school after initial treatment.

After a confirmed case, I will check your child 3-5 days after treatment and make sure the head lice and/or nits are gone.

Detecting Head lice: A visual inspection of your hair and scalp is usually effective in detecting head lice, though the creatures are so small that they can be difficult to spot with the naked eye. Parting your hair in small sections and literally going through each section with a fine-toothed comb is a painstaking, but necessary step to find and remove head lice. A bright light and a magnifying glass are useful tools to aid in the detection and diagnostic process.

Flu and Cold Season: It is flu and cold season. Please remind your child/children to wash their hands often. Singing the Happy Birthday song twice while washing their hands will make sure they are getting a good hand washing. Washing your hands is best practice to prevent the spread of germs. Make sure to cover your cough and sneeze with the crook of your elbow. Do not cough and sneeze into your hand unless you have a tissue. Always remember to dispose of your tissue properly and immediately wash your hands.

Fever: If your child has a fever, please keep them home until they are fever free for twenty-four hours without fever reducing medication.

Medication: All medication, including prescription and over-the-counter medication must be brought in by a parent or guardian to the nurse’s clinic. A doctor’s note must be faxed or brought in giving permission to administer the medication.

Sixth Grade Immunizations: If your child will be entering sixth grade for the 2017-2018 school year, a second varicella vaccination, a TDap booster vaccination, and a meningococcal vaccination are required. You may turn in immunizations to me if they are completed before summer.

Cough drops are considered a medication and should be bought to school by a parent, IF a student is wanting a different type than what is provided int he nurse's clinic. All cough drops are kept in the nurse's office and dispensed when needed. Our school district receives an annual doctor's order to administer cough drops to students, therefore parents are not required to provide a doctor's note.  

Incoming 6th graders are required by the Indiana State Health Department to have been given the following vaccinations: T-dap booster; second Varicella; and Meningococcal. Most 5th graders already have their second Varicella or chicken pox vaccine, so they will need to receive both a T-dap booster and Meningococcal vaccine to begin 6th grade. If you schedule your child’s vaccinations now, you will avoid the summer rush. If you’ve already had these immunizations, bring your records to the nurse, and they will enter your immunizations into your child’s school records.
