Rosa Grizzle, R.N.
The nurse’s clinic is open daily to see children. Reasons to visit the clinic include:
Prescriptions Medications (scheduled or as needed)
Over the counter medications
Fever or chills
Excessive runny nose
If a student comes to the clinic more than 2-3 times a week with a similar complaint, the nurse will discuss the problem with the teacher and the parents.
The medical information form that was sent home at the first of the year has to be returned to the clinic before any office medications can be given.
The clinic closes every day at 2:00 except for emergencies. No medications will be administered after 2:00. This is to prevent the risk of an overdose when your child gets home.
The nurse or teacher can not pull teeth or take splinters out.
If your child has a medical condition that could require treatment at school, please be sure your child’s teacher and the school nurse knows about it. If medication is needed for this condition, please take it to the nurse.
