Beginning of a New School Year
Let's begin the new year together with all of the necessary paperwork and forms which can be found under the Health Forms tab. Here is a little summary of the annual requirements for the health room as outlined by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and our district guidelines:
· Immunizations on file for all students· Physical Exams required for grades K and 6 only· Dental Exams required for grades K and 3 only
· Update all medical information on Infosnap annually during the open registration period - This includes updating Medication permission and Potassium Iodide annually.· Inform the nurse (directly) if your student has a new food or bee sting allergy and if he or she will require a "Peanut/Tree Nut-Free table at lunch time.· Obtain a form from nurse for all food allergies. This form is to be completed by the physician and I will share it with the food services department.· Medications should brought to school by the parent with Medication Permission to Administer form completed by both the doctor and the parent. This applies to all prescription and over the counter medications. Look to the HEALTH FORMS tab for medication authorization form.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I'm looking forward to a great year!
