District Health Office notice:
Just a friendly reminder that teachers who are taking their students on field trips need to get a class list down to your building nurse at least a week before the field trip. It is very important that you are aware of students you take on these field trips who have life threatening medical conditions and how to respond to them. The nurses need time to gather the needed information to give to staff, educate them, as well as any medications that need to go with.
If Correen or myself have already met with you this year regarding medical conditions in students such as asthma, etc. then future trips this year you can go to the building nurse for a brief review.
If you receive an email from the health office requesting to meet with you regarding medical conditions before the field trip, please reply within a timely manner. It is everyone's responsibility to keep our students safe in the school setting.
Again, we need time to do our part and this means getting the class lists to the building nurses at least a week if not more in advance of going on a field trip. I understand that some field trips can come up sooner than a week. In these instances, it's important to remember to get the list to the building nurse as soon as possible and that we still need to meet to go over the emergency plans prior to the field trip.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Thank you in advance for your teamwork.

THINK ABOUT THIS.......
Do you average your student's grades to come up with a final quarter grade? Is that an accurate way to calculate grades? Think about this, if Le Bron James and two teachers from FMS walked into the office, the average yearly income of the three people is about $16,000,000. Is that an accurate way to determine income averages?
Something to think about!
