The school nurse is not always available; therefore, when a child is sick in the morning, he/she should be kept at home. This prevents spreading of any contagious diseases and solves the problem of having to get the child home when he/she becomes too ill to stay in school. Please let the office know when your child is ill and will not be in school.
The school nurse provides many health services in our school. She cannot permit a child to take medication unless she has a permission note signed and dated by a parent.
