Nurses are no longer able to assess a student before school to see if they are OK to come to school . Parent/guardians are required to self monitor, take temps, and evaluate, or take the student to the doctor.

If you or your child has a fever of 100, and coughing, loss of taste, or smell, covid-19 symptoms, please do not bring them to school, they need to go to the doctor, further instructions will be given and for the school to allow to come back- please bring documentation.

If your child, has a fever of 100.4, diarrhea, vomiting, the student must stay home, go to the doctor to be excused.

It must be 24 hours without the aid of a medicine before allowed to come back to school.

Health screening-

I will be screening all of the children for vision, hearing, height, weight, and dental care- if they pass you will not hear from the nurse, if they require a dentist check up, BMI, vision, or hearing you will get a call or a letter. Screenings will be done individual and usually at the first few months of school.
