Medication can be administered at school under the following conditions:

  • All medication/pills, whether they are prescription or over-the-counter, must be kept and administered by the main office. No medications, including aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen will be given to a student, except from the school nurse with the permission of a parent/guardian, which can be given via telephone.

  • Prescription medications must be brought to the main office in their original prescription bottle and accompanied by the completed “School Medication Authorization Form” signed by a parent/guardian and a physician.

  • If your child must take short-term medication (antibiotics, etc.) for any reason, please make arrangements to administer the doses yourself.

  • Students may carry a daily dose of necessary medication or a multi-dose medication for diseases such as asthma or diabetes if a parent/guardian and the health care provider have completed and submitted the School Medication Authorization Form.


You must have proof of all required immunizations.  Students will not be allowed to attend school without receiving all the required vaccines for their age group.

Students in all grades (K through 12) must be immunized adequately according to Utah state guidelines.  The timing and spacing of vaccine doses are important in the appropriate use of vaccines.  Contact your student's healthcare provider or the local health department if you have questions regarding your student's immunization status.

Possible places to take your student to receive required immunizations include their healthcare provider, a local health department, an immunization clinic or your local pharmacy (Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Harmons, etc.).

For families who are underinsured, you can visit the link below for more information on how to receive immunizations.

For vaccination exemptions, parents/guardians are required to complete an online education module and print off the exemption form and return it to the school nurse.  Vaccination exemptions obtained in elementary school will stay valid until a student enters 7th grade. A new exemption form is required when a student enters 7th grade. Vaccination exemptions obtained in 7th grade or thereafter will stay valid until a student completes 12th grade.


If your student has a medical condition please contact the school nurse to discuss a possible plan for your student.
Diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, and similar conditions, which could require emergency treatment,
should be brought to the attention of the school nurse immediately.
This information is important for the safety of your child.


If your student has a confirmed medical diagnosis that is not covered in one of the above health forms for which you believe your student needs a medical class accommodation(s), then see the forms below.

The "Medical Diagnosis Form" is required to be completed and signed by an authorized healthcare provider and returned to the appropriate school nurse prior to any Individualized Healthcare Plan being considered.


Providence Hall Charter School does not provide health insurance or medical insurance coverage for students. The responsibility for ensuring students have medical insurance rests with students’ parents/guardians. Insurance policies may be purchased by parents/guardians for students in the private insurance marketplace.

Please ensure you have the names, phone numbers, and addresses of individuals who should be contacted in an emergency are updated when you complete the online registration and information update completed in Skyward at the beginning of each school year. Update this information promptly if it changes at any time by contacting the front office.

All accidents on campus are to be reported to the office where immediate care can be arranged. Students injured at school are not to leave school without contacting parents/guardians and receiving proper administrative authorization. Schools cannot release any student unless a parent/guardian is contacted. If a student becomes ill, (s)he should report to the office for assistance.

Students and parents/guardians may expect these procedures to be followed in the event of an accident at school:

  1. The student should report to the teacher his/her injury and what happened.

  2. If minor medical attention is needed, the teacher will bring the student to the office.

  3. In a more serious situation, a parent/guardian will be called immediately.

  4. School personnel cannot take a child to a health care provider unless it is an absolute emergency. School personnel will call 911 if immediate emergency medical attention is needed.

  5. We do not diagnose ailments or administer any medications in connection with an accident.
