  Welcome to the office of the School Nurse.  The nurse's office is open to students and staff during regular school hours.      

 

  • Attendance: If your child is unable to attend school due to illness or any other reason, please call the Magowan School Office to report the absence as soon as possible. Children who are absent should bring a note from the parent/guardian stating the dates of absence and the reason (illness, family event, vacation, etc.).

 

  • Medications may be given in school with a signed order from the physician and signature of the parent. Medication will not be given unless both of these requirements are met.

 

  • Registration: All children registering for school must present documentation of required immunizations and a physical exam. If you do not have a primary care physician, please contact the school nurse.

If your child is experiencing any of the above symptoms, there is relief available! Please call your child's doctor, who can discuss the symptoms with you and recommend available treatment options to keep your child healthy and comfortable throughout the changing seasons.
