Welcome to the Health Office

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Illness

 
Your child is to stay home if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms
  • Fever >100℉
  • Cough
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell
Follow up with a pediatrician for further guidance.
Your child must be fever free for 24hrs WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school.
 
Health Exams
 
Students entering Preschool and Kindergarten must have a health examination and proof of required immunizations prior to the first day of school. Subsequent health examinations in grades three and six must be performed as required by law and all immunizations must be kept up to date. (See forms to the right). Additionally: All preschoolers are required to have a influenza immunization in order to continue to attend school, proof must be submitted before the deadline in December.
 
Medication in School
 
Medication authorization forms will need to be completely filled out by a physician and signed by a parent if your child should receive any medication during the school year. The medication form should be dated for the beginning of the school year until the end of the school year in the format of MM/DD/YYYY to MM/DD/YYYY. State Law requires that all medications including over-the-counter needs to be brought in the original container labeled with the child's name and is kept in the health office. Parents are asked to deliver any medication directly to the Health Office. Students are not permitted to have medication in their possession at school.  Please be aware that each school year a new medication authorization form needs to be completed.  NO medications will be accepted without proper documentation (as stated above). All medications will need to be picked up by a parent/guardian by the last day of school or they will be discarded.
 
Allergies
 
The school nurse should be made aware of all food and environmental allergies. Saint Catherine of Siena is a Tree Nut/Peanut vigilant school. Some classrooms may be designated “Tree Nut/Peanut free” and according to the needs of the students in the classroom. All EpiPens are kept in the health office with the proper medical authorization forms. In order to keep all our students with food allergies safe, we ask that no food be brought into the classrooms for lunch/snack/celebrations with tree nuts, or peanuts ingredients, or from a facility that “makes or produces Tree Nuts and Peanuts.”

 

Thank you,
A Sarkinovic, RN
