Things To Know
image
Keep the Nurse Informed!
It is VERY important that the school has phone numbers where we can get in contact with you. We try our best to keep your child safe but when accidents happen, we must be able to reach you immediately. Also, if you change your phone number, please notify the school. 

It is also VERY important to turn in your child's Emergency Form. Please list any allergies, medical issues, and medications your child takes so I can provide the best possible care for your child. Please contact me if any medical needs change during the year.

Medications

If your child requires prescription medication during the school day, a form must signed by the doctor and parent before the medication can be administered. For any over-the-counter medications, a form must be signed by the parent. These forms are available on this website under "Files" or in the nurse's office. All medications must be brought to school and picked up by the parent. If you have any questions concerning the medication policy, please refer to the school handbook. Please don't forget to pick up any medication by the end of the last day of school. All medications will be discarded after this time.

When Should I Keep My Child Home?
Each day, many parents are faced with the decision of whether to keep their sick children home or send them to school. Often the way a child looks and acts can make the decision easier. The following guidelines should be considered:
  • Fever The child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees. The child can return to school after he/she has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicines such as Tylenol or Motrin/Ibuprofen).
  • Diarrhea/Vomiting A child with diarrhea/vomiting should remain home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.
  • Conjunctivitis (Pink-eye) Following a diagnosis, the child may return to school 24 hours after 1st dose of prescribed medication.
  • Rashes Common infectious diseases with rashes are most contagious in the early stages. A child with a suspicious rash should return to school only after the health care provider has made a diagnosis and given written permission to return to school.
  • Colds Consider keeping your child home if he/she is experiencing discomfort from cold symptoms, such as nasal congestion and cough. A continuous green discharge from the nose may be a sign of infection.  Consider having the child seen by your health care provider.
A sick child cannot learn effectively and is unable to participate in class as usual. Keeping a sick child home prevents the spread of illness in the school and allows the child an opportunity to rest and recover completely from their illness. Please do not hesitate to call me for questions.
 
REMINDER: Call in the mornings to report your child’s absence and send a note of explanation on their return.
