Our mission is to provide exceptional health services to support every student’s academic success.
You can help by informing our nurse if your child has:
- Chronic or acute illnesses
- Medication or change in medication dosage
- Been exposed to a communicable disease such as a strep throat infection, chickenpox, or conjunctivitis
- A life-threatening or new allergy
- A serious injury requiring hospitalization, or a diagnosed head concussion
- An injury requiring casting, sutures, a splint, or mobility assistance of crutches or wheelchair
- Vision or hearing difficulties
The school nurse will work with a student’s physician, parent, and other school personnel to meet individual health needs during school so the child may benefit from their educational program. A child must provide a note from the doctor for activity restriction due to an injury or illness.
Please help the school nurse by:
- Updating the phone numbers on your child’s school record so the nurse can always reach you
- Letting us know if there is an event at home or in the family that may impact your child at the school, like a military deployment, birth, or death of a family member or a beloved pet.
Please keep your child home when the following symptoms are present:
- A temperature of 100 degrees F or higher within the past 24 hours
- Vomiting or diarrhea occurring within the past 24 hours
- Strep infections of any kind, untreated ringworm, conjunctivitis, or impetigo. These are all contagious infections and must be treated with medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school
- A rash of unknown origin – this may indicate many different things and should be checked by your pediatrician
- Untreated lice infestation
