COVID 19: Stay Home - Stay Healthy


 

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
STAY AT HOME UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!
ALWAYS BE SURE TO WASH YOUR HANDS! 


Life is Better With Clean Hands

When it comes to preventing viral infections - respiratory and gastrointestinal – washing your hands is always the first-line measure.


Parents and caretakers play an important role in teaching children 
to wash their hands. Handwashing can become a lifelong healthy habit if you start teaching it at an early age. Teach kids the five easy steps for handwashing—wet, lather, scrub, rinse, and dry—and the key times to wash hands, such as after using the bathroom or before eating. You can find ways to make it fun, like making up your own handwashing song or turning it into a game.

All health forms and care plans are online under the Clinic Forms Section.

If your child has a chronic health concern, please make sure the appropriate careplan is completed asap. 
If your child takes medication, p
lease make sure you have completed and turned in ALL medication forms needed in order for me to administer needed medications.


The forms are only valid for the current school year and must be completed yearly. Please DO NOT send in medications with your child. Parents/Guardians must bring these into the clinic. If it is a prescription medication, a physician signature is required.

We DO NOT supply cough drops at school.


CAREDOX IS LIVE!!
Starting the first day of school, all clinic visits with the school nurse, will be documented in Caredox.  As a parent you will have an active role in this process to allow for a quicker easier way of communicating your child's health information. Please take time to complete your child's Caredox enrollment. 
IF YOU STILL HAVE NOT COMPLETED YOUR ENROLLMENT, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO. IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE, PLEASE EMAIL:  Activation@caredox.com
