Health Services

We at the Show Low Unified School District are fully committed to the health of our students. Our health services staff looks after each student’s physical and mental well-being while on our campus.

Administration of Medication

Certain health problems require that students take medication during school hours. Medication must be kept in the health office at all times.

  • Medication must be in its original, properly labeled container. Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label, as this serves as the doctor’s order.

  • Parents must provide a signed consent form with specific directions for use of the medication.

Immunization Information

We will notify parents of continuing students by mail if your child needs additional immunizations before the new school year. State law requires students to complete all required immunizations before school starts. We will not allow students who cannot provide proof of required immunizations to attend school or ride the bus on the first day of classes. Please submit immunization updates to the school office.

Additional Resources

School Insurance

Parents are responsible for all insurance claims for medical treatment of their children. Although our district does carry student accident insurance, it may not cover all or part of the bill.

Students with Severe Allergies

With parent permission, students with severe allergies may carry and self-administer an inhaler or EpiPen that has the proper labeling. Please check with the school office to obtain and sign the "Permission to Carry" form. We encourage students to report to an adult or to the office after using the EpiPen.
