Notes from The School Nurse
Please return all completed physical and dental exams to the Health Room by December 15, 2010.
If your child is absent for any reason, please contact the school by 9:30 A.M.
The goal of the Health Service Personnel is to instruct students in good health practices. This in part is done by maintaining good health through state mandated physical and dental exams, vision tests, hearing tests, measurements of height, weight and BMI. The Certified School Nurse is responsible for making sure that every student meets the state mandated immunization requirements.
Students who become ill or injured at school should report to the Nurse's Office. Parents are summoned, when necessary, to pick students up at school.
The district has adopted this policy to regulate the flow of medication in school:
Students who need to carry an asthma inhaler with them should register it with the nurse at the beginning of each school year.
Parents are encouraged to keep their children's health information up to date so that the nurses can communicate essential information to teachers and staff when it is necessary.
