Lovett employs registered nurses and retains the services of a consulting physician to ensure the general health and well-being of our students.
The nurses administer first aid and minor medical treatment, including over-the-counter medications (such as Tylenol, Advil, Sudafed, Mylanta, Maalox, etc.) for minor illnesses under the direction of the school’s consulting physician.
All prescribed medication taken during school hours must be brought to the school nurse in its original container with the label intact. The parent or guardian must fill out and sign a medication consent form for the nurse to administer the medication. If the parent is unable to bring the medication to the school, Middle and Upper School students may bring the medication to school and give it to the nurse at the beginning of the school day. It is the student’s responsibility to come to the Infirmary for the medication at the appropriate time. Students with asthma or severe allergies may self-administer prescribed inhalers/EpiPens with written documentation from the prescribing physician and the signed parent medication consent form.

Immunization and Health Forms
Georgia law requires that all students entering Georgia schools have a certificate of immunization form (Georgia 3231 received from a Georgia physician or health department) on file at the school no later than the first day of school. A completed Lovett Student Health Report (completed as part of the online enrollment) must also be on file in the Infirmary no later than the first day of school. If you completed a paper contract rather than the online enrollment, please contact the Infirmary as the Lovett Student Health Report is not on the Lovett website. All student physicals are considered current for one calendar year. This includes the GHSA forms needed for PE and sports.
