Happy 2020 to all! I can’t believe the school year is almost half over! Kelly, Patricia & I continue to keep things running smoothly in the health office. As most of you already have heard from one of us, we are continuing to update all student information, requesting current physicals and immunizations for the 2019-20′ school year. Thank you to all who have provided us with the influenza, Menatra & Tdap immunizations required by year’s end.
We have received many 3rd and 6th physicals and 6th grade immunizations. For those students who are going for their physicals in the remaining months, please send a copy to the health office. The Universal Health Form can be downloaded fro our website. For those student’s who will be going for their physicals now until the new school year of 2020-21, please send along those copies as well for the Fall. Also, those entering grade 6 will need their Menatra and Tdap upon entering grade 6, if they are the proper age.
As a reminder, all medication to be dispensed at school will require a Medication Authorization to be completed by the physician & signed by you, even those over the counter medications. Thank you all for your cooperation.
We are full swing into cold and flu season, remember to keep your child home if they are sent home with fever for 24 hours, fever free with no medication. It has been noted that many students come to school after being given medication, only to begin to feel sick by 11:00! Please keep your child home in order to help prevent others from becoming sick. Once again, we appreciate your consideration.
Thank you for helping us to keep the students’ healthy, so they may learn!
We all work as a team and look forward to keeping the students well, safe and secure. We want the students to always feel they can come to the health office, as we are their advocates first and foremost. Please feel free to drop by the Health Office with any questions or concerns. You can now call the health office directly, just call the main number, 201 487-8641 and our extension is 236.
