Health News

Greenville Public Schools strives to promote and maintain a healthy environment for all our students, staff, parents, and community members who visit our buildings.

Action Plan of Care

If your child has any health conditions, we ask that an Action Plan of Care be completed for each school year. These conditions are:

  • Asthma

  • Allergic/anaphylaxis reactions to food, insects, latex, etc.

  • Diabetes

  • Epilepsy/seizures

  • Cardiac/heart condition

  • Or any other health concern regarding routine or possible emergency care at school.

These action plans can be obtained at school or by calling Katie Hoffman, RN, at 231-633-4388.

Medication Administration Permission Form

Greenville Public Schools is a drug-free school zone. In compliance with this and our school policy, ANY STUDENT requiring a prescription or over-the-counter medication requires a Medication Permission slip signed by both the parent and physician. This must occur if your child will be self-medicating like many high school students do (i.e., Tylenol, ibuprofen, etc.) or if the staff at your child's school dispenses the medication. This form must be received at school before any medication can be dispensed or for your child to bring to school to self-medicate.

This form can be obtained at the school office or by calling Katie Hoffman, RN, at 231-633-4388.

"Do I send him/her today or not"?

Knowing when to keep your child home from school can be difficult. The control of communicable diseases in our schools is always of concern. Simple "Rules of Thumb" of when to keep a child home are if any of the following are exhibited:

  • Fever

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Uncontrolled cough and runny nose

  • Rash without a diagnosis by a healthcare provider
