The School Nurse performs the following health related services at our school.
The school Nurse is not in a position to diagnosis your child's health concerns, to prescribe medication, or to offer a prognosis. Please allow your family's primary care physician to make all decisions regarding the health of your child.
Students who are ill should stay home for the protection of the child and others. If a student becomes ill during the school day, the parent or guardian will be notified to pick up the student. If a parent cannot be reached, the emergency contact person will be notified. If we are unable to reach the emergency contact, the sponsor's supervisor will be contacted.
Any student with the following symptoms or communicable diseases should not be sent to school, and will be sent home:
DoDEA policy states that a child must be fever free (temperature less than 100°) for 24 hours WITHOUT Tylenol or Motrin. Unfortunately, many children return to school the day after they have been sent home with 100°+ temps. These children are still potentially infectious and they will be sent back home. Please help us protect our large population from the spread of all infectious occurrences.
For the protection of your child and school staff, we must adhere to DoDEA standards of safety measures regarding the administration of medication.
Standing prescription orders are written by a physician and apply only to students for which the order may be applicable.It is not necessary for the physician to have previously examined the student.Due to the complexity and joint service provision of health care services to the DoDEA organization, it is not feasible to provide universal standing orders for DoDEA School Nurses worldwide. Individual specific standing orders should be obtained for children with long-term illnesses that require treatment at school. Standing orders must be renewed annually
Medications must be kept in a locked cabinet at school, with the exception of asthma medication. Students diagnosed with asthma must have doctor and parental permission to carry their medication as well as a signed statement taking responsibility for the proper use of the medication.

Please keep your emergency contact information up to date in case your child becomes ill and we need to contact you.
