Notes from the Health Room:

Sniffle, Cough, Ah-choo!!


Parents must provide a medication form signed by their healthcare provider for ANY medicine to be taken at school. This includes cough drops, tylenol, allergy medicine, etc. This is due to a change in district policy. The school does not stock medicine of any kind in the health room.


What's Bugging You? Let's Talk about Lice!

Schools may see a spike in lice cases after school breaks: Summer, Winter, and again after Spring Break. This is often falsely attributed to the return to the school environment, but is actually due to being in the community for an extended period of time. School breaks are times when children commonly have sleepovers, go to camp or visit relatives, and then return to school. Rather than being the direct cause of infestation, the school setting is often the location where lice are identified. 

If you have concerns regarding the possibility of your child coming into contact with lice, please check your child’s head on a regular basis (for nits or lice). Over the Counter preparations such as Nix, Rid, Clear, and Pronto remain first line choices for treatment, and should be discussed with your physician.
