The Grant County School District is fortunate to have a nurse in each of our six schools, thanks, in part, to a grant received from the Northern Kentucky Health Department, as well as funding from the Grant County Board of Education.  In addition to the on-site nurses, Mary Beagle, District Health Coordinator, directs employee and student health initiatives. 

Throughout the year, these health care providers meet the immediate health needs as presented by staff and students; promote preventative health measures for staff and students; prepare and maintain Individual Health Plans on students with medical conditions; give meds as needed; and conduct health screenings, including vision, hearing, dental, scoliosis, height and weight, and head lice.  The health coordinator and school nurses are also available to counsel students and/or parents on individual health needs and to speak to groups on any school health topic.

MEDICATION
Medication may be given at school only if required during the school day.  A medication permission form (available here, in the nurse's office, or at local doctor's offices) must be on file, complete with parent and physician signatures, for prescription and/or over-the-counter meds.  If medication must be given on a field trip, we request that you provide a separate labeled bottle with only enough medication for that trip.  Medication is not to be transported by students; parents must bring medications to the school and pick-up any unused meds.
