Note from the School Nurse

Dear Parent(s):

I have really enjoyed getting to know your children the past few months.  Cold and flu season is here.  I would like to ask for parental cooperation during this time.

Please encourage good hand washing with soap and water at home and school.

DO NOT send children to school with known fever, rash, vomiting or diarrhea.  This will help reduce the spread of germs.

I CANNOT administer prescription medication without written consent from the prescribing doctor and the appropriate paper work filled out in the nurse office.

Please do not send children to school with prescription medication, it has to be brought to the nurse's office by a parent/guardian.   I will not give it unless the parent has brought it in and the medication authorization form has been signed.

I CANNOT give Advil or Tylenol if the student does not have his/her own bottle available at school and a medication authorization form completed by parent. The school DOES NOT  furnish medication for students.

Please do not send any medications, prescriptions or over the counter medications in a zip lock bag.  They must be in the ORIGINAL container.  I will not be able to accept them or dispense them to the children.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school at 899-5411.

 

Thank you for all that you do!

Paige Pope,

AHS Nurse
