A NOTE FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE
I am so glad to be the nurse at Atascocita Springs
In an effort to avoid students in the clinic feeling ill first thing in the morning, please use the following guidelines when determining whether or not to send your child to school. Your child is missing class time by being in the clinic if he or she is ill. If you have any questions about whether or not to send your child to school, please call the clinic. Also, if your child will be absent for any reason, please call the absence reporting line and leave a message.
Children should be kept home from school for the following reasons:
1. has had a temperature of 100.4 degrees or more in the last 24 hours
2. has any vomiting the night before, or the morning of school
3. has diarrhea the night before, or the day of school
4. a persistent cough
5. a continually runny nose with white, green, or yellow mucus
6. eyes that appear red and weeping
7. a rash of unknown cause anywhere on the body
Please make sure that your child’s Emergency Phone Numbers and Health Inventory are current and updated as needed. Please notify the school of any changes during the school year in writing or in person in the front office.
The Health Inventory enables the school staff to understand and meet the special health needs of your child. Please list all current medications and health conditions.
Let’s make sure your child(ren) are healthy and ready to learn when they arrive at school.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me.
Sincerely, Teresa Blake, RN, BSN, MPH
