WELCOME FROM YOUR SCHOOL NURSE!
Hello, My name is Rachel Guidera. I am the school nurse for Curtis Corner Middle School. I am responsible for taking care of the students' physical and emotional needs, and all of the required health screenings. Schools in Rhode Island are required to provide vision screenings to seventh graders; and scoliosis screenings to eighth graders.
Some main points to consider when preparing your child for any grade (from the nurses’ standpoint) include:
1. Medical Records: Please provide the most recent annual physical at the start of the school year. Please complete the annual health screen and include the most recent dental visit.
2. Medications: If your child requires medication to be given during the school day, please complete the medication form each year.
3. Attendance: If your child is going to be out, please let me know. If your child or someone in your house has tested positive for Covid 19 please let me know.
4. Clothing: Please send your child with a spare set of clothes. Spills and accidents of all kind happen at every grade level.
I look forward to getting to know you and your child during the 2022-2023 school year!
