Medication Administration

Students can have prescription and non-prescription medication at school when it is kept in the health office (or self-carried with prior authorization) and a medication administration form is filled out. Over-the-counter medications can be signed by the parent/guardian. Prescription medications must have a physician's signature. Medications must be brought to the health office in their original bottle with proper labeling. Medication Administration Forms are valid for the current school year only.

Individualized Health Plans (IHP)

Students who suffer from health conditions that may interfere with their school experience may benefit from an individualized healthcare plan (IHP). This is a written medical management plan that ensure the health and educational needs of the student. IHPs are developed by the school nurse with information provided from the student, parent/guardian(s) and the student's health care provider. If you think your student could benefit from an IHP, please contact bbyrom@bigfoot.k12.wi.us

Emergency Action Plan (EAP)

Students with medical conditions that may result in a health crisis should have an emergency action plan (EAP) on file. This plan created by the school nurse and distributed to school personnel with step-by-step instructions for a health emergency. If you think your student could benefit from an EAP, please contact bbyrom@bigfoot.k12.wi.us

Concussions

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that affects the way the brain works and can lead to symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and confusion. Symptoms usually go away within a few days to a month with rest and gradual return to school and regular activities. BFHS utilizes a 5-zone concussion restriction protocol based on assessment findings completed by a physician or the athletic trainer. Students who suffer from a concussion should notify the school as soon as possible.
