With trees budding and grass growing, we are beginning to see more students in the health office with seasonal allergy and asthma flare-ups. Please consider medicating your child with a non-drowsy antihistamine (such as Claritin) if he/she has allergy problems. Also, please DO NOT send inhalers for asthma in your child’s backpack. We must have doctor’s orders every year. With field trips and field day coming up, we should have an inhaler for every child with asthma in the health office in case of need. Please review the medication administration policy found on Lake Harriet’s health service web site. As a reminder, we cannot give prescription or even over-the-counter medications without a doctor’s order.
