Health Concerns: Please email me with any concerns you may have regarding your child's health. If you child is ill or injured and cannot fully participate in school activities, please have the doctor write a note for the nurse. Refer to these District Health Office links for more info: Illness/Communicable Disease and Injury/Activity Restrictions
Medications: If your child needs to receive medications in school, please have your child's doctor write orders. An adult will need to bring the medication to school along with a parent/guardian written permission for the medication. No medication can be given otherwise. See link above.
Physical Exams: If your child has a well-child physical, please be sure to request a copy for the school nurse. NYS requires physicals for kindergarten 1st, 3rd and 5th for the 2020-21 school year plus ANYONE NEW TO THE DISTRICT. However, all physicals are welcome throughout the year!! Refer to the District Health Office link for more info: Physical and Dental Exams
Immunizations: If your child receives any immunizations please ask for a copy for the school nurse. Refer to the link above for a list of immunizations required by NYS for school attendance.
Screenings: ON HOLD FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR AT THIS TIME. SCREENINGS CAN BE DONE UPON REQUEST. Your child will be screened by the school nurse during the school year for vision, hearing and scoliosis and required by NYS Law. If the Health Office has a current physical on file and the physician has performed the required screening, the nurse does not need to screen your child.
Field Trips: Remember that we need an extra labeled prescription container for daily medications so we can send medication on field trips. A school nurse does not regularly attend field trips, therefore medications are usually administered by other school staff if needed on field trips. Please refer to the District Health Office link for more info: Field Trips
Attendance: Report absents using the pikMyKid app.
