Nurse's Notes

Health Forms, including proof of immunization, need to be provided to the school by all new students and any student wishing to participate in sports during the school year.  In addition, students in grades pre-k, kindergarten, 2, and 4 are required, by law, to have a current physical done by their doctor.  Please be sure to get your physical forms and immunization records in to the school by September.  If you need a physical form, they are available at the school. 

Mrs. Barbara Gonzalez is our school nurse.

Notes from the Nurse:
Food Allergies are a major concern while ensuring the health and welfare of your child in school. Please help us to maintain the safety of all of our children. There are students in our school with severe food allergies. For safety, please do not send foods containing nuts or peanut products for the class to share. Check package labels when sending treats to class, many times there are “hidden” ingredients that you may not be aware of. Tell your child not to share their food with other students. If your child has a food allergy, sending in a “safe” box of snacks, to be kept in the classroom for your child to have is a good idea. This will ensure their safety should a treat be brought into school that they cannot eat. With your help, we can have a happy and safe school year for all of our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Barbara Gonzalez, RN, School Nurse at 283-1455 x 203.

Head Lice are a community problem brought into schools unintentionally by unsuspecting children. The peak times these children become infested with head lice are during vacations. Some of the common causes include sleeping away at camps, slumber parties and vacationing. However, because head lice are so small symptoms of itching may not develop for weeks or even months after infestation occur. Parents and children alike often do not even know that there is a problem until weeks later, unless the parent inspects a child’s head closely and often. Remember the single most important way to prevent a head lice problem in school is surveillance by the parent at home.

So please, begin looking carefully through your child’s scalp if you believe that they have been exposed. If you see any stage of the head louse, your child needs to be treated and the nits removed before you send them to school at which time they will need to be checked by the school nurse before re-entering. During the school year, you will be reminded by the school nurse to check your child. Please remember, head lice is a nuisance but they are treatable and are not life threatening. They do not carry disease. Your own health care provider is an excellent resource for you if you have any questions.
