Flu Season Ahead





It’s fall which means we are seeing FLU, common colds and stomach bugs are starting to show up around campus.

If your child has a life threatening health condition (Asthma, Severe Allergy requiring an Epi-Pen, Seizure, Diabetes) please be sure to bring in your child's care plan and medication to the nurse's office as soon as possible.

The Most Common Reasons Students Are Excluded from School:

  • Temperature 100 degrees or above. (Must be temp. free for 24 hours before returning without Tylenol/Motrin)
  • Vomiting 24 Hour vomit free
  • Diarrhea 24 Hour diarrhea free


If your child will require medications at school, we must have medication orders signed by the doctor and the parent/guardian and medication in the original container before we can administer medication at school. Only medication which cannot be given at home will be given at school.

All over-the-counter medicines (OTC) such as cough drops, cough syrups, antihistamines, creams, lotions, sprays, and pain relievers are not allowed at school unless accompanied by a signed written physician's order giving specific instructions for administration and a signed parent permission form. The OTC medication will be kept in the nurse's office under the same security as prescription medication.

No medications will be given unless there is a prescription label on medicine and a signed consent form in office.  Medicine will only be given to follow doctor’s order.  

Hearing and Vision Testing

All students in grades Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade will have their vision and hearing tested.  We will only notify those that are referred to see a doctor of results.

Please notify the school nurse of any medical condition changes, or restrictions to activity immediately.
