Crane School District’s Health Services is strongly committed to student health and well-being. The goal of the health office is to support the educational process by promoting optimum wellness and working closely with parents/guardians, teachers and administrators, to assess and evaluate the health needs of students and to accommodate students with specific health concerns. To assist the Crane health personnel in providing the best care possible for your child, it is important that as a parent you ensure the following: Students must have proof of all required immunizations in order to attend the first day of school. Please keep all emergency telephone numbers up to date. Although rare, emergencies can happen. If your child has special needs related to any type of disability, please provide the school health office with all necessary information. All prescription medication to be given during school hours must be in the original container with the dispensing pharmacy label, amount and time to be given, along with a signed consent form from a parent/guardian. All over-the-counter medication must be provided by the parent, must be in the original container and dispensed within the recommendations on the label, along with a signed consent form from a parent/guardian. By law, medications cannot be transported by students on the bus. We cannot give medication from Mexico without written consent from a United States physician. Please do not send your child to school if he/she has a fever, undiagnosed rash, is vomiting or has diarrhea.
Optimal learning requires good health. The health needs of our children have always been the first priority of the school health personnel, and with your help we can assure continued success.
