NO NURSE ON THURSDAYS: PARENTS BE AWARE, I will not be in my office on Thursdays. Front Office Staff will give daily routine medication and asthma inhalers to students. There will be no treatment given and any student not feeling well enough to be in class will be sent home. Front office staff cannot diagnose, give Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Tums, eyedrops, allergy medication or cough medication. I do this when I am here to keep students in school unless they have a fever. If your student does not feel well in the morning, has a fever, or has vomited during the night, do not send them to school.
Certificates of Exemption are due IMMEDIATELY if you haven't already gotten it for your child. It must be filed with the State Department of Health and a notarized copy returned to Jenny Farquhar, school nurse. Please call 986 4005 if you need a form or have any questions.
Be aware, students with medical issues will require new Doctor's orders and medications such as ASTHMA INHALERS AND EPI-PENS for the new school year. Please notify the nurse if your student has any new medical or allergy issues.
