Welcome to the Health Room!
After an illness, your student should be fever free (below 99.6) for 24 hours without the aid of a fever reducing medication before returning to school.
If your student takes a prescription medication at school, new paperwork needs to be filled out each school year. This includes inhalers and insulin. Please use the following links to print a copy for your child's doctor to sign and also sign yourself as parent/guardian. Send this paper and the medication to school with your child to give to the nurse. Thank you.
During the school year, I will perform vision and hearing tests on all sixth graders and any fifth graders new to the district. Parents of students not passing these screenings will be sent a letter of referral. Please respond to these referrals by returning the note, by phone call, or email.
Parents may be contacted to come and pick up their child during the day if the student becomes ill.
Some of the criteria used to determine if the child should remain at home, or if parents will be contacted to come and pick up the child from school are as follows:
1. if there is a temperature of 99.6 degrees with symptoms, such as headache, sore throat, nausea/vomiting, rashes.
2. if there is a temperature of 100 degrees with no symptoms. The student should remain home until the temperature has been normal for 24 hours without the aid of medication.
3. pink eye – students with pink eye shall be excluded from school until 24 hours after treatment has started.
4. head lice – If a child is found to have head lice, the parent will be called to come to the school and pick up the student. The student will not be allowed to ride the bus or return to the classroom until checked by the school nurse and found to be free of lice.
5. all injuries which result in unusual swelling, discoloration, or pain.
6. cuts which appear to require stitches.
7. dental injuries.
