We are winding down the 2017-18 school year. While everyone is looking forward to summer break, we are already planning for NEXT year! If your student has medication at school, be prepared to pick it up by the end of school on May 24, 2018. Early in May you will receive a reminder along with paperwork to be completed for next year. When you see your healthcare provider in July, you can get them to fill it out. You can also find several of the most common forms on the links below. Your student spends almost 1/3 of his/her day at school. Please make sure we have the medical information we need to care for them while they are here each day.
Reminders for next year:
- Please fill out the Health Information Card completely and return it to school as soon as possible.
- Be sure to initial any listed over the counter medications that student has permission to take at school if the nurse feels like it is necessary.
- Make sure that your student has emergency medication in the clinic if the doctor has ordered them at home (such as Epi-pen, inhaler, nebulizer medication).
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the year and summer break!
This is a VERY informative site from the CDC on concussion and brain injury in children. I would urge every parent to read up and learn about how concussions affect your child. They are not "just a concussion".
This is a free video off of BrainpopJr. Let your kids watch this and they can see HOW germs travel and infect kids. It also emphasizes the need to wash hands!
