It is the primary goal of the AGS Infirmary to keep our students safe and healthy, to manage chronic and acute health problems, and to be a resource and advocate for families in our community.

Medication & Sickness Policies

  • For acute or long-term medications to be administered during school hours, an Authorization to Administer Medication Form must be provided, signed by a physician. Click here to download the AGS Authorization to Administer Medication Form.
  • Students requiring medication or intervention for anaphylaxis, diabetes, seizure disorders, and asthma will have an Action Plan on file with the school nurse. Click here to download an Asthma Action Plan.
  • All students are required to have current immunization reports and a Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Form on file each school year. Click here to download a Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Form
  • When shouldn’t I send my child to school when she is sick? 
    Often the way a child looks and acts can make the decision an obvious one. The following guidelines should be considered when making the decision. 

    • Fever
      The student should remain home with a fever greater than 100 degrees. The student can return to school after she has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin). 
    • Diarrhea/Vomiting
      A student with diarrhea and/or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom free for 24 hours.
