                        Winter Reminders from the School Nursej0232190

 

  • All medications, even those sold over-the-counter (Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.) require a signed prescription from the doctor, as well as written parental consent, to be administered by the nurse in the health room.j0232190

 

  • The school nurse has approval to administer Chloraseptic spray and salt water gargles to all students to ease nagging coughs or sore throats.

 

  • Chapped lips are very common this time of year, so if your child is susceptible, please send lip-balm/chapstick with them in their backpack for personal use.

 

  • Remember that if your child is sick and has a fever, he/she must be fever-free for 24hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) before returning to school.  j0232190

 

  • If your child has vomited or had diarrhea at home, it is best to keep him or her home until symptom-free for 24 hours.

 

  • If your child will be absent due to illness, please remember to call the office and let them know.  Please send in a note upon his or her return to school.  If you have a note from the doctor, remember to send that in as well.

  • Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns. j0232190
