Mobile ESD Health Department
Our Health Department monitors immunizations, conducts health screenings, maintains medical records, and cares for students who are ill or have emergency medical needs at school. We work with parents and students and advise on preventive health care. We may administer medication only if we have a signed parent consent allowing this. You may request this form in the district or school office.
Students may not have prescription or over-the-counter medicines in their possession. Please give all medicines to the nurse for proper handling and dispensing. You and your child must keep prescription medication in the current pharmacy container, labeled with your child's name and correct dosage instructions. We ask that you and your child handle over-the-counter medicines in the same way. We will call your child from the classroom or cafeteria for timely administration of prescription and other medications.
