From the School Nurse

We are on the final countdown for the ‘20-’21 school year. We are thankful that we have made it through this! Just to wrap things up, I’d like to send out a few general reminders for the upcoming school year. 
  • If your child has medicine at the school, make sure there are arrangements made to have it picked up or it will be discarded.
  • If your child needs to take prescription medication at school next year, please bring the completed and signed paperwork to school prior to the first day of school, if able. Below is a link for the school medication form that I need signed by a parent/guardian and medical provider. This includes inhalers, epi-pens, scheduled medicine and “as needed” medications. https://www.now.k12.wi.us/UserFiles/Servers/Server_112073/File/Medication%20Authorization.pdf 
  • Please keep your child up to date on immunizations. Parents with children going into 4K, 5K and 6th grade (Tdap) will need to pay special attention to this. Summer is a great time to get your kids into the doctor.
  • If your child has borrowed any pants or shirts from the health office, please return them as we only have a small supply of extras in case of accidents. We are mostly in need of sizes 5 and 6. Sweatpants and leggings are easy and preferred if you want to donate.
  • If your child has any health concerns that the school should be aware of, please be sure to include them on the health form when registering for next school year. You can also email me anytime at cpeterson@now.k12.wi.us
Have a great summer and stay safe!
