Nurse

Welcome to the New School Year!

It is wonderful to see all of the smiling children returning for a new school year. It is our goal to maintain a healthy and safe learning environment for your children. If you have any health concerns about your child, please feel free to call or stop by the nurses’ office. It is important to remember if your child is ill, please follow the policy in the handbook concerning absences and returning to school. We make every effort to limit the spread of germs in the building and it requires the support of the entire community.

Paperwork for EpiPens, Inhalers, and all other medications can be found on the Aquinas website. All medications requiring a prescription must have the appropriate paperwork filled out by a physician before being brought to the clinic for the new school year.

All Aquinas students planning to participate in an Aquinas sport this school year are required to have a complete  Aquinas Sports Physical which can be found on the Aquinas Website. The physical needs to be dated on or after June 1, 2017.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the nurses any time.

We look forward to working with you this school year!

God Bless,

 

Staying Healthy

Allergies continue to be active as we head into fall.  If your child takes seasonal allergy medication, it should be regularly administered during this time of year. 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.
