Nurse's Notes

Notes from the School Nurse


New students need to bring immunization records when they enter school, including the required series of kindergarten immunizations. The district has also requested a form filled out by the student’s dental provider to show their dental needs are being met.

  • If your child has a health issue that requires special consideration, please call the nurse's office at 334-1294 to discuss it.

  •  

  • When a student requires medication at school, it must be in the original bottle with a script on it for school. A Permission to Administer Form is also needed to give legal authorization to distribute the medication. This is necessary even for over the counter medication, such as ibuprofen.

  • When a student has had a fever, or has been vomiting at all, they should not come to school until they have been fever free or NOT vomiting for 24 hours without the aid of medication. This will protect their classmates and teachers, and will also protect them, as their immune system is compromised at that time and they could become more sick.

  • When a student has been to the ER or doctor, and needs to not participate in gym, a note is needed from the ER, Urgent Care or doctor that states why and how long they need to stay out of gym. If they are out of gym, for their safety they cannot participate in recess, as they could injure themselves.

Notes from the School Nurse

  • Sometimes children need a change of clothing while in school. This could be caused by wet slides or grass, or due to an accident for the younger children. We ask that parents provide a change of clothing for their child to be kept in their lockers or cubbies in the event that they should need to change for any reason. This will prevent us from having to call you to bring a change of clothes in the event that we do not have clothing that will fit your child. Also, many times children are not willing to wear clothing that is not their own.

Please make sure that the school always has an up to date phone number in case of an emergency. If something happens to your child and the phone numbers are not working, you could miss a call that informs you of an emergency and directs you where to go.
