I am excited to be back for this school year and look forward to caring for our students. Please feel free to call or stop by the clinic with new questions or concerns.
Medication sheets are avilable from the clinic or can be printed from the "Helpful Documents" part of my website. Please remember medications must be dropped off at school by a parent!
The state has changed the limit of fever for exclusion from school to 100 degrees.
Please keep this in mind and know that students will be sent home for temperatures at or above 100. Please keep students home if they have had a temp of 100 or higher in the 24 hours prior to the start of the school day!
As the school nurse, I am committed to providing quality health care to your children and would like to encourage open communication between home and school in order to promote wellness for our students. It is my hope that all students will achieve their maximum learning potential in a safe, healthy, comfortable environment.
Please keep the school nurse aware of any conditions (medical, psychological, emotional, or behavioral) involving your child. This includes but is not limited to:
- Medication taken regularly at home or changes to medication already reported
- Fractures, casts, crutches, stitches, splints, etc.
- Cardiac (heart) monitors being worn during the school day
- Contagious conditions you are aware of
- Results and follow-up of any testing or doctor visits previously discussed with school nurse and new ones that will impact the student at school
Children should be kept home from school for the following reasons:
- Has had a temperature of 100 degrees or more in the last 24 hoursàStudents should be fever free for a full 24 hours, WITHOUT the use of fever-reducing medication, before returning to school in order to limit the spread of illness.
- Has any vomiting the night before, or the morning of school
- Has diarrhea the night before, or the day of school
- A persistent cough that would be disruptive to the learning of your own child and others
- A continually runny nose with white, green, or yellow mucus
- Evidence of lice
- Eyes that appear red and weeping
- A rash of unknown cause anywhere on the body
- ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE CLINIC BY THE PARENT OR ANOTHER ADULT PER DISTRICT POLICY. All medication (prescription & non-prescription) must be supplied in their original containers and will be kept in the clinic.
- Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label with the child’s name, and will require a doctor’s signature on the medication form. Forms are available in the clinic and online on the nurse’s school webpage.
- Due to the large size of our school and the inability to wash and dry clothing at school, no clothing (other than a few pairs of brand new donated underwear) will be kept in the school clinic.
- In the event that your child needs clothes at school for reasons including but not limited to restroom accidents, dress code violations, large food spills or mud puddles you will be called to provide clean items for your child.
- If you will be unavailable to bring or have someone bring needed items during the school day, please make sure a change of clean, dress code appropriate and weather appropriate clothes is kept in their backpack at all times.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at 281-641-2005. I am looking forward to another healthy year of learning at Timbers Elementary.
