Health Room/School Nurse

  • In preparation for the school year, there are a couple of items that may make your student better able to stay at school. If your student suffers from headaches, menstrual cramps, etc., please come to the Health Room at registration and complete a half-sheet medication form. This will allow your student to carry a one day’s dose of non‐prescription medication (Advil, Tylenol, Motrin, etc.).

    If your student needs prescription medication at school, such as inhalers or medication for ADHD, please come into the Health Room and pick up a medication form. You will need to sign this and have your doctor complete it as well. All medication forms need to be completed at the beginning of the new school year. If your student had a form on file last year, it does not carry over to this year.

    If your child received immunizations during the summer, please call me with those dates so that the school nurse can update his/her record. Feel free to leave a message at 360‐563‐7507.

    Lastly, as you probably know, if your student has a life‐threatening health condition, such as diabetes or anaphylaxis, we need to have a signed health care plan in place, as well as the appropriate medication form and any necessary medications and supplies. This needs to occur before the first day of school.
