Happy new school year! I hope all of your children have a successful, happy, and healthy 2023-2024 school year.
If your child requires medication at school, a doctor's order is mandatory along with parent consent. Please do not send medications into school with your children. All medications must be handed off to the nurse from a parent/guardian. Medications in school INCLUDE all OTC meds such as Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, etc. and anything that has an "active ingredient" on the back, such as sunscreen, bug spray, Vaseline.
If your child is actively vomiting, having diarrhea, has an open weepy rash, a positive Covid test, and/or a temperature of 100 or greater, please keep them home and reach out to the Health Office for an appropriate timeline to return your child to school.
All students being treated for pinkeye and/or strep need to remain out of school until they have been on antibiotics for 24 hours and MUST have a doctor's note to return to school.
If your child is returning to school after surgery or an injury, they must have a doctor's note to return to school along with any physician ordered activity restrictions. Once your child has been placed on restrictions, they will need a doctor's note to resume all activities.
It is imperative to have reliable and available contacts for your child during the school day in the event of an emergency or necessary dismissal. If you would like to update your child's contact information in our computer, please notify call Mrs. Fortier or Mrs. Fogg at 508-324-3170.
I am available during office hours M-F 8:30-3:30 at 508-324-3170 (prompt 2 or x109). I do check my email on weekends and in the evenings periodically. All non-emergent issues will be addressed the following school day during working hours. The Health Office also closes daily from 1:45-2:15.
If you have outstanding medical paperwork to submit to complete your child's registration, you can either have the pediatrician fax it to my CONFIDENTIAL fax or you can upload it directly to my email.
Thank you all for your dedicated efforts to provide our students with a safe and valuable learning experience.

Indiana Bones is the official mascot of the Health Office! He greets the kids as they walk by as well as presenting a wealth of knowledge about bones, joints, teeth and how our bodies work. He provides us with the greatest lesson of all... inside we are ALL the same! Ask your kiddos how Mr. Bones was dressed up this week!
