Welcome to all students, parents and guardians! As your school nurse I am responsible for monitoring your child’s health and safety in the school setting throughout the year. With your help, the school health program can enhance and maintain the highest level of health for each student and provide a rewarding school experience. Please contact me with school health questions and concerns. Remember, if your child is ill; please call my office to report his/her absence. Your call helps to track contagious diseases in the school community.

When to Keep your Child at Home
Food at School
Medications in School
Over-the-counter, non-prescription medications such as medicated cough drops, cough syrup, decongestants etc. require a written order from your child's doctor. All OTC's must be kept in the nurse's office, not in the classroom.
Prescription medication taken for 10 days or less such as antibiotics do not require a doctor's order, but must be sent to school in the original pharmacy labeled container. Prescription medication sent to school in an envelope or plastic bag will not be given.
Long-term or emergency prescription medication such as inhalers, epi-pens and Psychotropic medication require a written doctor's order and must be sent in the original pharmacy labeled container.
These Department of Public Health regulations are in place to keep you child safe. Your cooperation in the safe dispensing of medication is greatly appreciated!
