Welcome to the Saxtons River Elementary Health Office
The school nurses hope to form a partnership with parents and students to help make these elementary school years successful. We encourage all to make healthy life choices and offer a variety of up to date and reliable health information and skills such as stress/anger management, medication management, nutritional education, and screenings to your child. We want to collaborate with your child's physician to form a relationship with him or her.
We provide health care, health information and emotional support during your student's school year. Each young person is unique and we have the opportunity to get to know your child during their years at SRES. Our goal is help students stay healthy so they can access their education.
Every student should have a yearly updated Medical Health Form Information form completed by parent/guardian at the beginning of each school year.
Medications for students to take at school must be in a current pharmacy bottle and we do need a signed parent permission form for students, and a doctors order yearly. Over the counter medication must be in an original package and accompanied by a signed permission as well.
If your student has a life threatening allergy requiring an epipen , asthma and uses an inhaler or other treatment plan please speak to the nurse to develop an emergency plan and/or anaphylaxis plan.
