    Nursing Services

    Our school nurse will be here one to two days a week. She provides the following services:

    • Handling injuries and emergencies
    • Health screening for vision and hearing
    • Scoliosis Screening (all fifth grade students will be screened for scoliosis in the spring. A letter will be sent home to parents explaining the procedure)
    • Handling health concerns. If your child has food allergies, bee sting allergies, asthma, other medical conditions, etc., please contact the nurse. It is important to have a plan on file for how those conditions should be handled

    When the nurse is not at the school, office staff and parent volunteers handle injuries and emergencies. Please remember that all medications should be taken at home. This includes over-the-counter medicines and those scheduled to be taken three times a day. If your child takes medication regularly and must take it at school, you will need to complete a special form available from the office and obtain a doctor’s signature. No medication, whether prescription or over-the-counter, will be administered without a completed, form signed by both parent and physician. Do not send any medication, including Tylenol, Advil, cough drops, etc. to school with your child. It must be brought to the office. There are no exceptions. Please talk to the school nurse regarding this procedure. If your child has serious health problems, please call the school office for assistance.
