Welcome to the Madrid School's Health Page
Dental Exam: A dental screening/or exam is required by the state for all incoming kindergarten and ninth grade students. The school is audited annually to determine our compliance with this recommendation.
Medication Permission : All medications/medical treatments given at school must be accompanied by a completed and signed medication permission form. All medication (over the counter and prescription) must be in the original container with the student’s name on it. Most pharmacies will provide an additional prescription bottle for use at school. At the secondary level only, some over the counter medications may be given with permission on the annual health update form. For all others the medication form must be used.
Athletic Physical: All students at the secondary level participating in sports must have a sports physical completed and on file annually.
Annual Health Update: This form is to be completed on each student enrolled in k-12 each year. It is also found on the back side of the enrollment form in the school’s enrollment packet. The form keeps us informed of health information that may affect a child’s academic success.
Concussion Form : Students participating in interscholastic athletics, cheerleading & dance and their parents/guardians: must annually sign the acknowledgement and return it to the school. Students cannot practice or participate in those activities until the form is signed & returned.
Student Asthma Card: Any child diagnosed with Asthma or Reactive Airway Disorder who carries inhalers or uses them at school or during school activities or who has inhalation treatments, must have this form completed and signed by a physician annually. The form provides us with permission for the child to carry the medication themselves and for us to treat. It also gives us guidelines for appropriate interventions for each child
Food Allergies: Any student with diagnosed food allergies must have both of the forms completed and signed by a physician annually. One form allows the food service staff to provide appropriate substitutes if necessary and the other form provides guidance for health and teaching staff to use in the event the child has an allergic reaction to food.
