Happy December to all! I can’t believe the year is going so quickly, and with all the Christmas regalia going on, it will go even faster! 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. If you have not done so, we would greatly appreciate the immunizations, physicals and Influenza vaccines before the due date of December 31, 2019.
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 not be given the Menatra due to the child’s age, please have the pediatrician write a note stating they will have it when age appropriate. We encourage all parents to send a copy of their student’s physicals, so we can keep our health charts current. Thank you for those parents who have already done so.
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.
