All students who have medications that need to be administered during school hours must have the "Permission to Medicate" form on file with the office (see link below). The medication itself will also be kept in the office and must be in the original container with the student's name on it. This includes over the counter medication. The form must be signed by a physician in order for the medication to be administered to your student. With the exception of Epipens and inhalers, students SHOULD NOT carry medication with them while at school. In the case of emergency treatments that result in your student (even temporarily) needing to take medications at school, parents/guardians should still fill out the "Permission to Medicate" form and turn it into the office with a physician's note. Both will be kept on file.
Students with Asthma
Students with asthma should provide the office with an "Asthma Management Plan" form (see link below) in addition to a "Permission to Medicate" form for any inhalers or other medications. Note that the "Asthma Management Plan" form also requires a physician's signature.
Health Appraisal Form
Whether your student is new to the district or is an incoming Kindergartner, 7th grader, or 9th grader, all students who are new to any school in Northville need to have a Health Appraisal Form filled out and turned in to the office. Note that this form is NOT what is needed for a student to play sports (see the below "Physicals for Sports" section).
Physicals for Sports
NPS has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service, that allows you to complete and sign athletic participation forms for your student. We ask that all parents register their athlete on FinalForms. Click here for information and to set up your account and your student's account. All students who wish to participate in sports must have a complete, up-to-date Sports Physical Form (see FinalForms) on file before they tryout or begin practice for their sport. A new physical must be completed for each school year that a student plays sports, and physicals must be dated on or after April 15 of the previous school year. Please be sure all fields of the form are filled out and that a physician has signed the appropriate areas. If your student's form is incomplete, out of date, or does not have a physician's signature, they will NOT be able to participate in sports!
