Mrs. Michelle Ward RN, MSN
Please make sure the school has accurate phone numbers so we can reach you or someone else to pick up your child if they are ill. Please remember to send in new work numbers if you change jobs. Also, remember to inform the nurse of any surgery or serious illness that your child might have that causes them to miss school for a lengthy time. The nurse can be reached by contacting McIlvaine's office at 335-5039. Thank you.
If a child requires medicine to be given in school, a parent must request in writing that the medicine be given, and it must be in the original container with the dosage directions on the label. Medicine that is not in the original container (such as a plastic bag) cannot be administered in school.Change of Clothes
It is recommended that a change of clothes be kept in your child's book bag. Active kindergartners may require a clean shirt or other items during the day due to lunchtime or playground accidents.
Hearing and Vision Screening
All kindergartners will be screened in the fall of the school year. If the results of the screening indicates a need for further testing, a note will be sent home. If you received a vision or hearing referral for your child, please return it to me after they are seen or call me with the results of their exam at 335-5039.
1. Temperature over 100 degrees in the
last 12-24 hours. If you suspect that they may be sick please check
their temperature with a thermometer before sending them to school. If
they have a fever it is not appropriate to send them to school, even if
you give them Tylenol and their fever breaks. They will still be
contagious to other children and will also not be feeling well enough
2. Vomiting or diarrhea in the last 12-24
3. An unexplained rash.
5. Red or crusty eyelids or drainage from eyes.
6. Headache, cough, sore throat, or congestion severe enough to interfere with attention to school work.
7. Flare-ups of asthma, that would make it difficult to work in school.
