NOTES FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE
Hello, my name
is Brenda Lundberg and I am the Humble Elementary School Nurse. I
enjoy being a School Nurse because I love caring for children, working
with their families and being a resource/liaison to the community.
I aim to provide the best possible care for your children. In order to
do this, I am asking for your help in maintaining a healthy environment
for your children as well as the other children in our school.
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:
- Has had a temperature of 100 degrees or more in the last 24 hours
- Has any vomiting the night before, or the morning of school
- Has diarrhea the night before, or the day of school
- A persistent cough
- A continually runny nose with white, green, or yellow mucus
- Eyes that appear red and weeping
- 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.

person. The Health Inventory enables the school staff to understand and
meet the special health needs of your child.
all current medications and health conditions. Parents, if your child
has any chronic illness or Food Allergies/Life Threatening
Allergies contact me prior to the first day of school. I will need to
speak to you, assess your child and provide special forms that your
child's Pediatrician will need to complete. Parents whose child needs
medication at school will also need to contact me regarding
documentation and storage. Please remember that children are not
permitted to bring medication to school and medication has to be
delivered to the school by an adult.
Thank you for
your cooperation. This is to make sure that your child(ren) are
healthy and ready to learn when they arrive at school. If you have any
questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me. I am here to
partner with you in caring for your child. Here's to a wonderful and
