Welcome to the 2017-2018 school Year! I absolutely love being the nurse at CMS!
 
Back-to-School Reminders:
  • Per School Board policy please do not send medications to school with your student (this includes everything from cough drops and beyond).
  • All medication must be delivered by a parent/guardian or their adult designee in the original packaging. Prescription medications must have a current prescription label attached.
  • Over-the-Counter medications that are permitted to be administered in the school setting include Tylenol(acetaminophen), Motrin(ibuprofen), Benadryl(diphenhydramine), dramamine, lactase, tums and cough drops. Any other OTC medications may only be given with a prescriptive note from a Health Care Provider.
  • Please contact the school nurse to complete a permission form if prescription medication needs to be administered to your student during the school year.
  • If your student currently has asthma, diabetes, seizures, or history of severe allergies/anaphylaxis please contact the school nurse to start an action plan for the current school year. 
 
We already have a few illnesses going around, please encourage your students to wash their hands. Students that have a fever, vomiting or have diarrhea should stay home until symptoms resolve.
  
Every year I preform standard health screens on all new students to district and all 7th graders. The standard health screen includes: height, weight, hearing, vision and blood pressure. I send out referrals if needed to be reassessed by a physician.
 
In March I plan to start Student Postural Screenings; as early as 5th grade your student could start forming a curvature in their spine. A curve to the spine can worsen as your child continues to grow; we screen at 5th, 6th, and 8th grade to detect signs of spinal curvature at the earliest stages. I will be sending more information home to those 6th and 8th grade parents during or after the Christmas break.
 

Contact me any time with any questions or concerns.
