Health Office

Welcome to Boonville High School from the Health Office. The health office is staffed everyday. Our goal is to keep your student healthy and in school. If your student has a medical condition, please let the health office know so we can document it. If your child has Asthma, Diabetes, Seizures, Insect Allergies, Food Allergies,  please turn in an Action Plan that their Medical Provider has filled out.  These must be completed every school year.

Ill students must go to the nurse and have the nurse contact their parent regarding any need to leave school. The school nurse or office personnel must speak directly with the parent/guardian in order to write a pass enabling the student to leave the building without being considered unexcused or truant. This is very important. 

Medications at School:

Medication sheets are available upon request in the office. Please fill out the form and your student can return it with the medication on the first day of school. There are no stock medications in the school. So if your student is prone to headaches, etc. and needs Tylenol or Advil or other over-the-counter medication, please send in advance. All medication must be in the original container with the student's name on the bottle. If it is a prescription medication, the label must match the way it is to be administered at school. All medications must be kept in the nurse's office unless they are approved to self carry and documentation is turned into the nurses office each school year.  This means students are not allowed to carry any medication in the halls. No meds can be given unless there is written consent from the parent or guardian. 

Please feel free to call the office at any time during the school day or email me at if you have any questions or concerns. Please let us know how we can help your student enjoy the school year.

The Indiana State Department of Health believes that protecting Indiana's citizens from vaccine preventable diseases is one of the most important roles of public health. Indiana is experiencing an increase in hepatitis A cases. To ensure that all of Indiana's youth are properly protected against this disease, new school immunization requirements were implemented in fall 2020. All students in kindergarten through 12th grade who attend an accredited school in Indiana are required to have two doses of hepatitis A vaccine.

Please make an appointment with your healthcare provider to complete the series and discuss any other adolescent vaccines that might be needed to protect your child from vaccine-preventable diseases and/or cancer, including human papillomavirus (HPV) and meningitis B.

* If you have a religious objection to vaccinations, the objection must be in writing, signed by the child’s parent, and delivered to the school. A religious objection must state that the objection to an immunization is based on religious grounds. To ensure the continued religious objection status for a student, parents must provide written documentation of the religious objection each school year. If you need a  Religious Objection Form please contact the school's health office.  Please note that Medical Exemptions and Religious Objections must be completed every school year, within 20 days of the start of the school year. Failure to comply within the first 20 days of the school year may result in exclusion proceedings per State Code IC 20-34-3-2 and MCCSC policy 5320.  

If you have questions about your child's immunization history, MyVaxlndiana is an online tool that allows individuals to access their immunization records after receiving a secure personal information number (PIN) from their healthcare providers. This tool enables individuals to view, print or electronically store their records since 2012. Please ask your healthcare provider how to access your child's record.

Yours in health,
