A Note from our Nurse...

Dina Ward


Please let our health room staff know of any problems that may affect your child’s learning.  Vision and hearing screenings are routinely performed at the school for selected grade levels and on an as needed basis.  Parents will be notified of any need for further attention in these areas.

            The State Health Department sets guidelines that the school must follow for the control of communicable diseases.  Current record of required immunizations must be on file to be able to attend school.  Please be sure that vaccination records are up to date and on file in the nurse’s office.  If your child is sick or was sick the night before and is not completely recovered, he or she should not be sent to school.  If children do not feel well they cannot perform well and learn at their greatest potential.  The risk of infecting others at school is also a great concern to all of us.

            APS has a medication policy to address the use of medicines at school.  All medications must be in the original labeled container and must be signed in by the school nurse.  Prescription medications require an authorization form signed by the child’s physician and parent.  A Parent Authorization form is required for over the counter medication.  No child will be given any kind of medication at school without following APS procedures.
