My phone # is 973-317-7754 or e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child receives a physical, a new vaccine, has been diagnosed with an illness, is going to be absent from school, is taking a new medication during school or at home - please contact me by telephone or e mail.
Remember, any medication, whether prescription or over the counter, requires a medication administration form to be completed and signed by both parent or guardian AND a doctor. Most forms can be downloaded off the nurses site.
September is bustling in my office. All students are weighed, measured, BMI calculated, Blood Pressures checked, vision checked in the 6th and 8th graders, hearing checked in the 7th graders, scoliosis checked in the 5th and 7th graders. All results will be recorded on a worksheet and sent home with the first marking period report cards.
If your child needs to take medications during school please drop the completed and signed forms and labelled medications to my office as soon as possible.
