Medication in school is not normally a part of education. However, medication is allowed by the Moline Board of Education during school hours when:

1. A doctor says the medicine must be given during the school day to allow the student to attend school.

2. The District medication forms are available in the school office. They must be completed by the doctor, signed by the parent and be on file in the school. Forms are needed for non-prescription drugs including cough drops, Tylenol, etc. Medication should be brought to the school office and picked up by the parent or another responsible person, not the student. Students using inhalers for asthma control, epi-pens for bee stings, diabetic monitoring or other medicines or treatments must have a doctor's written note to "self-administer" their medication.

Physicals and immunizations for 6th graders, or new students to the district, are due by October 15, 2023. If they are not into the nurse by that date the student will be excluded until the physical and immunizations are turned in.  Doctor's appointments in lieu of records are not accepted.  No exceptions!

Please be aware of New Illinois immunization requirements for students entering 6th grade:

  • 2 doses of MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
  • 3 doses of Hepatitis B for students entering grade 6
  • 2 doses of Varicella (Chicken Pox) for students entering Kindergarten, 6th and 9th grades
  • Meningococcal- one dose after age 11
  • Tdap
