Loge Elementary School is happy to have the services of a part time Registered Nurse on staff and two full time health aides. If you have any questions concerning your child's health, please contact the school office.

All medications must be kept in the office until needed. Parents must fill out a medication form provided by the nurse for any medication taken at school.
In the event of accidents at school parents will be contacted Please keep this information current.

Whenever three or more students in a grade level have lice or nits, the nurse plans to screen all of the students in that grade within ten school days. Federal Way Schools have a no live lice policy.
There are often questions concerning medications at school. Please remember: any medication, including both prescription and over the counter medicines such as Tylenol or cough medicine, can be given only with a completed school medication form signed by the prescribing physician as well as the parent. Forms are available in the school office as well as many medical clinics.
All medication must be brought in the original container, by an adult, and counted with school staff in the case of any controlled substances. Please call with any questions or to request a copy of the district policy. Thanks for your cooperation.
