Welcome to the Health Office

Greeting SKS families!

My name is Lisa Marie Magargal, and I am the school nurse at SKS! I am very excited to begin the new school year. I wanted to send a few friendly reminders to everyone regarding the sick policies and when to keep your child home from school. A close collaboration between parents and schools is one of the most important aspects of our health plan. If your child has a fever above 100.4 you should keep them home until they are 24 hours fever free without Tylenol/Motrin. If your child has active vomiting or diarrhea, please keep them home until symptoms clear.

Please remember that if your child requires medication while in school a form must be filled out by the family physician. Medication should be brought in by the parents and delivered to the school nurse. If your child requires an allergy action form, please have your physician complete the action plan and submit it to me. Forms can be found on the SKS website under the “parent information” tab. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at any time. My email address is lmagargal@sksschool.org. I am looking forward to a great school year!

Health Forms

Health Exam Form

Familes are required by PA State Law to submit a Physical Examination completed no earlier than one year prior to the start of Kindergarten (or 1st grade if new to the school in 1st) and 6th grades.  This is also required for any student new to Pennsylvania.
The up to date immunization record should also accompany the completed Physical Examination.
A  Dental examination completed no earlier than one year prior to the start of kindergarten, 3 and 7th grades.  This is also required for any student new to Pennsylvania.

Medication Administration at School

If your child will require any prescribed medication during school hours, please have the medication permission form completed and returned for Health Office use. This form must be signed and dated by you and your child’s physician. This form is to be used for any short term or long term medications.

Dental Form

This is to be completed by dentist before entering kindergarten, and updated before entering both 3rd and 7th grade:

FARE form

If your child has any food allergies, please complete the Food Allergy Care Plan. It can be printed and taken to your physician at your next visit. This must be signed and dated by your physician in order to be considered valid.  We also ask that you provide 2 recent pictures of your child, 2 Epi-Pens and any oral anti-histamines that your doctor prescribes in case of allergic reaction here at school. Your child’s individual care plan and medications will be kept in our office for easy access in the event of an allergic reaction.
