STUDENT HEALTH CONCERNS
If you send a note or an email to your child’s teacher regarding your child’s health, please make sure this information gets relayed to Nurse Lamkie as well. You can email her or call the clinic directly. 

VISION AND HEARING SCREENINGS
Vision screening tests will be provided for students in grades kindergarten, one, three, and five. Test results will be entered into the student's health records. Hearing Screenings will be given to students in kindergarten, first, second, and fourth grades. Parents will be notified if there are any concerns as a result of these screenings and a referral will be sent home for follow up with their own physician.

ILLNESS OR INJURY
In the event that a child becomes ill or is seriously injured, the clinic will contact the parent by telephone. Parents need to report to the office when arriving at school. If a parent cannot be reached, the nurse will call the emergency numbers listed on the student's contact form. In critical situations, the student will be transported immediately to the nearest hospital.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION
We must have up-to-date emergency information on file for each student. For your child's welfare, please notify the school immediately if there are changes in your address, phone number, diagnosed allergies, or with your emergency contact person.

MEDICINE AND TREATMENT
Administration of prescription medication is the responsibility of the home and when possible, should not be given at school. However, when the appropriate form, signed by a doctor, is filed by the parent with the school, prescription medication may be taken by your child when administered by school personnel in the clinic. Prescription medicine must be secured in a current, appropriately labeled pharmacy bottle It is suggested that medications be brought to school by the parent/guardian. If this is not possible, the medication is to be taken to the nurse's office immediately upon arrival at school. Any remaining prescription medication must be picked up from the clinic by an adult. For administration of over-the-counter medication, please contact Nurse Sheila.
