The school nurse helps facilitate health for all students and staff in the Edmunds Middle School community, to create a healthy learning environment for the most optimal learning experience possible.
Every student must have an emergency information sheet on file in the school. This gives us pertinent information about your child’s doctor and health insurance in case of emergency. It also provides us your permission to give your student ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) when they have any headaches or muscle aches at school. Students in this age group get headaches and muscles aches often because of all the physical and hormonal changes taking place within their bodies in middle school.Required Immunizations
By the 6th grade, students should typically have the following number of immunizations: 3 Hep B, 2 MMR, 2 Varicella, 5 DTaP, and 4 Polio. In 7th grade, students are required to have the Tdap PRIOR to school starting. Please keep this in mind if your child has a doctor’s appointment over the summer. If your student does not have the Tdap PRIOR to the start of school the district policy states they will not be allowed to attend school. If students do not have the above mentioned vaccinations, your family must fill out the appropriate exemption paperwork required by the state.Medication at School
As a reminder anytime your student brings medication to school, our district requires all medications to be in locked cabinet in the nurse’s office. Prescription medication MUST be brought to school in its original prescription bottle, otherwise it cannot be given out. In addition a parent signature and a physician’s signature are required on our district medication administration form to give the student the prescribed medication.Please keep in mind that if your child needs to take medication at school, the district policy is clearly stated below:
If your student has any type of allergy, an allergy emergency action plan must mailed or brought in person to school every new school year. A parent signature and a doctor signature must accompany the stated plan, and any necessary medication such as an Epi-pen or Benadryl should be brought to school for the specific student it is intended for.
