Happy American Heart Month!
This is celebrated in February! Heart health is important for everyone - young and old! Remember to take care of your heart by eating healthy, getting exercise, and rest to decrease your chances of hypertension (high blood pressure), which is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease and stroke!
Covid Protocol and Testing:
The daily rapid testing clinic is now back open!! This free resource is for staff, students and parents of anyone attending USD #266!! You can check our district website for updated information regarding our Daily Rapid Testing Clinic hours, locations and Close Contact Protocols. If you plan to go to the testing clinic, please take the consent form and have it filled out prior to arriving.
Covid Vaccine Notification:
Please continue to upload a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card in Skyward if your student has received both doses. You can always email this to me too!! A child is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving their second dose!
If your child needs to take any medication at school, a consent form must be filled out every school year before any medication is administered at school. You can find this form on the USD266 website by clicking here and clicking Authorization for Medication. If this medication is prescribed by a physician, I need their signature as well in order to administer.
I am excited to announce that I am due with my second son on March 3rd! I will be taking some time away to be with my new baby and I plan to return in May before the end of the school year. A long-term nurse sub has been acquired for my position while I am gone. Nurse Janelle will be a great fit here at MSIS and has experience in ER nursing and as a school nurse substitute. Do not hesitate to continue to reach out to her by calling my number if you have any questions or concerns!
Please feel free to contact me by stopping by my office, calling, or emailing me if you have any questions or concerns about your student!
