Some Important reminders :

All medications must be in it's original pharmacy labeled container.
All medications must be brought to and from school by an adult.
Emergency Cards: Please remember to update contact numbers. It is very important to be able to contact you in the event your child is sick or injured.
Absence Due to Fever: Any child who has a temperature of 100* or more may not be in school. Please do not send your child back to school unless they are fever free for at least 12 hours without the use of Tylenol, Motrin or other fever reducing medications.
Absence Due to Vomiting or Diarrhea: Any child with vomiting or diarrhea may not be in school. Your child will need to be home until they are symptom free for at least 12 hours. This is not just for your child's benefit but also so that germs are not spread during the school day to the other students.
Health Records: Records are maintained for each student. Please notify the health office of any changes in your child's health- including a new allergy/ allergic reaction, injury, hospitalization, illness/ disease or other health condition, so that the student's file can be kept up to date.
Health Screenings: Blood pressure, height, weight and hearing are performed yearly with vision being screened in kindergarten and second grade. If a referral is sent home please have the physician complete the form and return it to the nurse's office with 2 weeks.
Food Allergies: Food allergies are a serious issue in the classroom. Please be respectful of those children with allergies so that they may safely enjoy the celebration. Please remember that all food brought into school for celebrations must be safe for all children in the classroom.
Thank you for your partnership in keeping your
child healthy and safe.
