WINTER NOTES FROM THE NURSE
As the weather is cooler, please have your child dress appropriately for the weather. They will need stocking hats, gloves, boots and a warm coat as recess is generally held outside unless it is bitterly cold. All lower elementary children should have a complete set of clothing in their locker.
A reminder that students should not be at school if they have been up at night with cough, fever, vomiting, or diarrhea. Please make sure that we have your current contact information as well.
When informing us of your child's absence, please let us know what symptoms or diagnosis they have. This allows us to track illnesses.
CHANGES FOR THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR
7TH GRADERS will be required to have BOTH a TdaP booster and a Meningococcal vaccine BEFORE BEGINNING THE SCHOOL YEAR.
12TH GRADERS will also be required to have a Menengiococcal vaccine BEFORE BEGINNING THE SCHOOL YEAR. (2 doses if born after September 15, 1999 OR 1 dose if received when applicant was 16 years of age or older)
The Meningococcal requirement has just passed the legislature and will now be implemented in the next school year.
Once these boosters are completed, please get a new IMMUNIZATION CERTIFICATE from your doctor's office and turn into the office at the beginning of the school year.
If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Robinson at 319-647-2161 ext 109 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also will need a physical before coming in the fall, as well as updating any immunizations. We will need a copy of your immunization record for our files. In the upcoming year Kindergarten students will also need a dental screening and a lead test. A vision exam is also encouraged prior to beginning the school year. All forms were included in your Kindergarten packet and may be returned at registration.
PRESCHOOLERS will also need a very brief physical and we will need a copy of your immunization record. Check with your physician to see
that these are current.
