Hello Cumberland Christian Families, August 2018
My name is Becky Bird, and I am so pleased to be the new school nurse. I am looking forward to this new school year with all of you!
HEALTH CONCERNS: Prior to the first day of school, please update in RenWeb ANY severe allergies your child may have!! For the safety of your child, it is imperative that we know this information, as well as any medications needed by the first day of school. I can always be reached at email@example.com.
MEDICATIONS: NO child is to take or carry PRESCRIPTION OR OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS to school. If a child, by order of a physician, must receive medications in school, a prescription label IS NOT acceptable in lieu of an MD’s order. A written order must be obtained. The prescribed medication in its original container must be brought to school by the parent/guardian on the first day of school. All medication MUST be administered in the nurses’ office. If you administer medication to your child before he/she comes to school which could affect his/her performance, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am in the process of reviewing immunization records. If your student is missing one or more of the required immunizations and does not have a medical or personal beliefs exemption on file, you will be receiving a letter, along with a list of the state required immunizations. We absolutely need this information back as soon as possible.
If your student has a chronic medical condition or a health concern and we have not yet spoken, please email me at email@example.com so that we can set up a time to discuss your student’s needs.
My goal is to team with you and the teachers to ensure your student’s health and safety while he/she is at school. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance. Here’s to a great school year!
Respectfully, Becky Bird, RN
