Seasonal Flu A Guide for Parents
HAVE a HEALTHY YEAR!
It is our hope that your children will enjoy good health throughout the school year. However, if your young child should become ill with a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or severe cough, it is necessary for you to keep him or her out of school. DO not medicate to reduce a fever and then sent your child to school, as they are still contagious. It is in the best interest of your child and the others in the class if you follow these guidelines.
A written doctor's order must be given to the school nurse before ANY medications can be administered in school. This includes over the counter medication. Please do NOT send medication to school with a child. An adult should drop off and pick up medication. Medicine must be in the original container.
Physical exams are required for Pre-k, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 11th grade. You are encouraged to have this done with your own doctor (bring in a copy of the exam for our records). If this is not possible, our school nurse practitioner is scheduled to be here on several days throughout the year to provide exams.
Sports Physicals are provided free of charge by the school. The nurse practitioner who examines the students is only scheduled here a limited number of times.
Injuries at School
If your child is injured in a school activity(a school employee must be supervising), and you seek medical attention, be sure to notify the health office ASAP so an incident report can be completed by the supervising employee.
in to let us know if your child will be absent or late any day from school. 278-5511 opt2 .If we have not heard from you we may call to verify the absence. This is done as a safety / accountability issue.
Whenever there is a reported case or two, head checks are done and a letter is backpacked home to every family.Be sure to check regularly for lice and nits. Using a good metal lice comb each day at home can prevent a major infestation. It is important to remember that this is a common childhood occurrence, having nothing to do with cleanliness. It is a nuisance but not a health hazard.
NY State Law
Reminder to all parents of 5th graders: Your child must be immunized with the required Tdap and second varicella vaccine. This is required to start school in 6th grade.
Recess and Sunscreen
During the warm weather our students go outside for recess and often for P.E. as well. If you wish, your child can apply sunscreen before going outside , if you send it and write a note to say it is ok.
