Shots, Spring Shot Clinic, & PE Notes

Parents and families of 6th graders

Our holiday break is over and we are back. The Nurse Office will be getting ready for the spring so your child will be ready to go to the 7th grade (from a health standpoint).

Immunizations

I had 6 more shots turned into the Nurse Office and those have all been entered electronically as of today.

Don’t forget that if your child has had the following shots, please send me a copy to the McAnally Nurse Office. I enter them electronically and place the paper copy in the paper student health file. Both electronic and paper copies follow them to the Middle School. Bi-Weekly, I send Kathy Allen (over Curriculum Development and District Nurses in Administration) an updated immunization list for 7th grade and continue through the spring months. We have had 75 students turn in proof of those shots and those have all been entered electronically as they were sent. Thank you!

The shots needed are:

Tdap booster

Meningococcal (sometimes called menactra or MCV4)

2nd Varicella (chickenpox shot) If your child has had the chickenpox illness, a second shot is not necessary, but documentation is needed.

Shot Clinic
McAnally will have Parker County Hospital District offer a shot clinic coming up. Usually this is scheduled after Spring Break. The date is to be determined, but I will let you know as soon as I have a date. The clinic is done in the school nurse office and if parents can't be here, the Nurse is available for hugs or holding a hand during the shots. If there is potential for anxiety, it can be arranged that the shots are given privately without any other student's in the room.

Watch for a message in February with a date for the clinic.

Medications

Don’t forget, that the state policy Aledo ISD follows on medications, requires parents/families to send medication to be given in the nurse office.

Over the Counter medications, a Med form needs to be completed with the medication being sent – med must be in the container, no baggies

Prescription medications, the prescription needs  to be sent to the nurse office with a doctor’s order from your child’s doctor - Prescriptions cannot be given without an order (pharmacy labels on the med are not doctor’s orders). If you cannot send a med form, please handwrite a written note about the medication  and I will complete a med form and send it home with your child that day for you to sign.

Each student that sends medications has a med drawer with their medication kept in the drawer. These medications are only used for the student that brought the meds in. Please make sure any medication you want given is brought into the nurse office. You will be notified of the time your child is taking the medication and it will be kept safe in the nurse office.

 

PE Notes

Remember, if your child is injured outside of their school day (sports practice, games, at home, ect), Coach Brooks has asked that you write a note to her about their injury and participation level. She has asked to remind that notes from home are good for three days and beyond three days, a note from the child’s physician is required. If you go to a minor emergency clinic instead of the regular doctor’s office, ask for a note for PE if the physician you see feels a note is needed. One copy is placed in your child’s PE paper file and the other copy is place in your child’s paper health file and will follow them tp 7th grade.


Thank you,

Mrs. Creed
