From the Nurses Office

The goal of both parents and school staff is to ensure that the students are safe and well at school. Students who are healthy are able to focus on the job of learning. So what happens when they don't feel well?
If a child doesn't feel well during the school day, that student will receive permission from the teacher to visit the school nurse. If the nurse determines a need for the child to go home, the nurse will contact that child's parent.  
Unfortunately, some students bypass the nurse, use their cell phones to call and ask their parents to take them home. Some common complaints include headache, stomach ache, and sore throat. There are times that increased fluid intake, rest, crackers or a salt water gargle can help to alleviate these symptoms.
If you receive a phone call or text from your child complaining that they do not feel well at school, please encourage them to visit the nurse. Rest assured that you will be contacted if there is a need for your child to go home.
