A Note From Lead Hill’s School Nurse
We are off to a great start! Just a few things to mention as we move into the school year. Please do not send your child to school when he or she is sick or has temperature of 100 degrees or greater. In the case of a fever, students must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. No Medications may be administered at school without written consent from the parent and the students medical provider if necessary. Please do not send any medications to school with your child. They need to be brought in by a parent/guardian only. This includes over the counter medications.If your child has any medical conditions that would require monitoring/treatment of that condition at school, please see me to complete an Action Plan. These are necessary so that in the event your child has a medical emergency while at school, we will be best able to provide for their needs. Please be aware of the ever present risk your child has to being exposed to head lice. Lice do not discriminate, and contrary to popular belief, they prefer cleanliness. Please check your child's hair daily. Prior to bath time is a good time, so try to build that into your routine. Prevention is much easier and cheaper than having to treat an entire household. There are a lot of good lice prevention tips available as well as some recipes for lice repellent sprays that you can make and use daily to help lessen the chances that your child could get lice. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
