Hi PDX mom,
Although it won’t change the policy long term, the best bet is to talk to the psych doctor and then get a note if he/she agrees the vomiting periodically is from the meds. The school RN has to follow a protocol or algorithm, and is not usually permitted that leeway to determine “the vomiting is from xyz and is not contagious; therefore the student can remain in school”. Sorry, I know it must be a pain!
I love Portland, OR. Was just out there to visit my 99 year old great-uncle, who is still as active as I am at half his age!
