Welcome to the Health Office
Greeting SKS families!
My name is Lisa Marie Magargal, and I will be the new school nurse this year! I am very excited to begin the new school year and meet all the students! 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 COVID-19 response 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.
I also wanted to remind everyone that masks are no longer a requirement, but please feel free to use your discretion if your child prefers to wear his/her masks while in school. The guidelines from the Centers of Disease Control states that any student or staff member who tested positive for Covid- 19 should stay home a minimum of 5 days and wear a mask when returning to school during days 6-10. If your child is absent from school due to a positive Covid test SKS will provide make-up work for the student to complete during their time out of the classroom. Virtual learning is not available.
If a student or staff member comes in close contact with a positive case the recommendation is that the student or staff can return to school with a mask and test on the second and fourth days after exposure. If after that time, the student or staff is negative, then a mask is not recommended. If the person does test positive, please follow the above procedure for a positive case.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to a great school year!
Health Exam Form
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.
This is to be completed by dentist before entering kindergarten, and updated before entering both 3rd and 7th grade:
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.
