Welcome to the MST Clinic Page!
When is my child too sick to come to school? Children should stay home if they have:
- A fever over 100.0 and remain home until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication
- Vomiting or diarrhea and should remain home until they have not vomited/had diarrhea for 24 hours
- Pink eye, or any drainage from the eye
- Lice, scabies, pinworms (until treated)
Please keep your child home if they are sick. We don’t want to expose other students to potential illness.
Medications At School:
Please remember students must have a signed medication form on file in the clinic in order to take any medications at school. This includes inhalers, tylenol, ibuprofen, cold/ cough syrups, even cough drops. Any medication requires written parent authorization. Forms are available online and here in the clinic. You may also click directly on the link below.
Important Information About Cough Drops:
Please remember cough drops are considered an over the counter medication. Allowing your child to have cough drops in their pocket is against RISD's medication guidelines. The only way a child can have cough drops during school is if the appropriate forms are complete in the clinic. Please refer to the Medication Guidelines for further explaination of which medications are and are not allowed during school. The Medication Guidelines and Medication Administration Parent Authorization Forms can be found on Edline. You can click the link below to take you straight to these documents. As always contact me if there are any further questions.
Thank you for helping keep our school safe!
