Nurse Office Info

As the school year is winding down, I wanted to remind you about a few things:

 

Shots

If you take your child for 7th grade 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. Weekly, I inform Kathy Allen (over Curriculum Development and District Nurses in Administration) an updated immunizations for 7th grade and continue through the end of May. If you don’t send me a copy, I cannot enter it electronically or place it in the paper health file and the Head Nurse will be contacting you over the summer to bring a copy to the Middle School over summer break.

 

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.

 

As I receive new shots, I am entering them electronically and this next week will print the students who have turned one in recently, an updated copy to go home. Replace the copy sent home at Spring Break with this new copy, please. Remember to keep this thru Middle School starting in August.

 

Med Pick-Up

The last few weeks of school, you will receive a letter about the policy for picking up your child’s meds. When you receive this, you will need to complete it, sign it, and return it if you plan to obtain the remaining doses of your child’s medication the last week of school. The medication will be ready the last week of school for pick up.

 

Six Flags Field Trip

The field trip to Six Flags is coming up soon. I go on the Field Trip and carry medications for students with Medication Forms currently in the nurse office and first aid supplies. If you have a child with special dietary/medication needs, please let me know in writing so I can work that out ahead of time and help those students get into the park. State policy for Texas Schools requires 24 hours for notifying the nurse prior to field trips for medications, dietary needs, ect.

 

 

**********Other Info**********

 

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). Each student that sends medications has a med drawer with their medication kept in the drawer.

 

PE Notes

Remember, if your child is injured outside of their school day (sports practice, games, at home, ect), PE Coaches have 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. 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 to 7th grade.

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Creed
