From the Health Room
- Dress your child for cold, wet weather. Even if you transport them to school, they are usually expected to be out of doors at recess time.
- Consider clothing that is visible in poor weather and dim light. Many parents sew strips of reflector tape to their youngster's jackets.
- Students should wear sturdy closed-toed shoes that can withstand some exposure to wetness.
- Wash hands often
- Remind your child to cover their coughs and sneezes with the inside of their elbows to reduce the spreading of germs.
- The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends 10 hours of sleep a night for school aged children. Please remember that Sunday night is a school night.
- All medications that are brought to school need to have a "medication authorization" form filled out in advance.
- Free immunization record booklets are available for keeping track of your child's immunizations at home.
Reminder: If your child has a fever over 99.9 degrees OR has thrown up, they will need need to be kept home 24 hours afterwards. Please call Melissa Young, the school nurse, at 596-6808 with any updates on your child's health condition or questions.
Please keep all emergency phone contact numbers current, and remember to notify the school if your work number has changed or if any of the other phone numbers for your emergency contacts change. If your child is suddenly ill or injured we need to be able to reach someone quickly.
