Things To Know
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.
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:
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.
