Welcome Back students from your Nurse Traci
A few reminders for this upcoming school year to make the health office easier:
Please fill out the Emergency health card and be sure your child returns it to me. Without this card I cannot give your child any over the counter medications. I do not accept text message confirmation for medication approval.
All medications to be given at school must have a doctor's order. This is daily medication and as needed. Please bring in the order with the medication or have your pediatrician fax the order to the nurse's office.
- All medications must be in the original container from the pharmacy with a label.
All medications are to be brought to the school and the nurse will sign them in, I will count prescribed medications.
Physicals are required for students in Grade 10. Immunizations may be needed or updated. Please have these physicals faxed to the nurse.
The nurse will be performing State mandated screenings on all Grade 10 students including hearing, vision, heights, and weights (TBD).
The nurse will be performing State mandated Scoliosis testing on Grades 8 and 9 (TBD).
- Sports physicals are required yearly.
Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you to make your child's school experience happy and healthy.
Sincerely, Traci Gelinas, RN Hoosac Valley High School
