Thank you to all of the students who participated in Health Screenings. If the the nurses identified any concerns, especially with vision or hearing, you will receive a letter with what was assessed and a recommendation for a follow up with your physician. If you do not receive a letter, your child’s health screening is complete and they fall within the normal parameters for their age.
Allergies continue to be active this fall. If your child takes seasonal allergy medication, it should be regularly administered during this time of year. There are also respiratory and stomach viruses becoming more prevalent as the weather changes. Continue to remind students of good hygiene and frequent hand washing to prevent the spread of germs.
All medication, including cough drops, must be kept in the clinic with the appropriate paperwork completed. Over the counter medication paperwork can be found on the website and only needs to be completed by a parent or guardian. Prescription medication requires a physician’s signature and information on the prescription filled in by the licensed health care provider. All of the forms are available on the website.
