The nurses will assess all student's near vision and will assess far vision for those in K, 1, 3, and 5 if the screening was not completed at the annual physical exam by your child's doctor. You will be notified of the results.

    Injuries: Please call the health office if your child will be coming to school with stitches, a cast, crutches, wheelchair, or other injury.  A note from their physician describing the injury and school restrictions is required. If your child is unable to fully participate in Physical Education class, they will be unable to attend outside recess until they are cleared by the physician. 

    Food in School: Classroom teachers and room parents will provide guidelines for safe snacks in school during classroom parties and special events. Food should not be shared with other students due to allergies or religious, ethnic or parental preference. All food brought into school must be store bought with the ingredients label. 

    Please reach out to the nurses with any questions or concerns you have! Thank you for your partnership.
