From the Desk of the School Nurse
A recent review of electronic student health records has prompted the school nurse(s) to put out reminders for the upcoming school year in the fall. Annual documentation regarding certain health concerns is required for students with certain health concerns/needs that are listed here:
- Medication Administration at School
- Asthma (especially with inhaler and/or nebulizer use)
- Food Allergies and Anaphylaxis (allergies that require Epi-pens)
- Health Concerns that may require an Emergency Action Plan (bleeding disorders, etc.)
Certain health concerns students may have listed in their PowerSchool profile prompt the need for documents supporting care at school. Please review each child’s electronic PowerSchool record. If you feel that your child no longer has a health concern/need, please make changes to your child’s PowerSchool profile under health concerns.
If you have questions about a health concern/need or about the documentation/forms please contact the nurse’s office by phone at 641-664-2200 ext 1120 after August
