    Dear Parent:

    I am Candace Barry.  I will be the School Nurse at Stix ECC and would like to welcome all the students and parents. I look forward to taking care of your child for the 2020-2021 school year. To ensure your child’s health and safety I would like to share some information with you.

    Medications

    ·         If your child will need to take a prescribed or over the counter medication at school click here to see required documents.

    ·         NO child is to carry PRESCRIPTION OR OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS to school. An adult will be asked to pick up the medication.

    ·         If you administer medication to your child before he/she comes to school, which could affect their performance, please send in a note to the teacher.

    Screening

    ·         All Kindergarteners, 1st, and 2nd graders will have their vision and hearing checked during the school year and you will be notified if further testing is needed.

    ·         Vision and hearing is not checked for Pre K as their doctor does this during their physical exam.

    ·         Dental Screening consent forms will be sent out during the school year for all grades.

    Immunizations

    ·         You will be notified during the school year if your child needs an immunization.

    ·         Click here for information on where you can get your child immunized.

    Illness

    ·         Children should remain home for a temperature of 100 or above and can return when they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

    ·         Pink Eye: Child should see their doctor to rule out bacterial conjunctivitis and get a doctors’ note before coming to school.

    ·         Rashes: Child should see their doctor to rule out contagious rashes and get a doctors’ note before coming to school.

    ·         Diarrhea: Child should remain home until free of diarrhea.

    ·         Vomiting: Child should remain home until free of vomiting and able to eat/drink without vomiting.

    ·         Difficulty Breathing/Severe coughing: Child should see their doctor and remain home until this is better.

    Please provide doctor's, dentist, etc... notes to school anytime your child is seen.

    I hope everyone has a safe and healthy school year. Please let me know if I can be of any help throughout the school year. ---Nurse Barry
