Parents may now bring the following over-the-counter medications for their student to the Health Room WITHOUT needing a health care provider signature: Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, antacids, anti-histamines (one dose only), and cough drops (no essential oils or herbal medications). Parents will still sign the Permission to Administer Medication form when bringing the medication to the Health Room. Dosing will be per the original packaging directions for age and/or weight. Students with fevers over 100.5 will be sent home, per District 20 Illness Guidelines, and NO Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen will be administered. Students will not be allowed to self-carry these medications but can access through the Health Room.
Effective 07-01-2016, the Colorado Department of Education requires ANNUAL signing of the exemption waiver form for parents selecting to not immunize students for personal or religious reasons. The required form is contained on this web site. Signed forms expire annually on June 30th of each school year. New signed waivers may be returned to Challenger's Health Room.
Exemptions for medical reasons, as signed by the Health Care Provider, will continue to be valid for the length of District 20 attendance.
Challenger Middle School, a community dedicated to each unique learner, provides transformative education and innovative learning, with a technological emphasis and intentional social skills development, in a safe and nurturing environment that cultivates students' passions, character, and critical thinking in preparation for an unimaginable future.
