Once you are buzzed into the building, please report to the office to sign in and pick up a visitor or volunteer badge. You must bring a driver's license with you in order to receive a badge.

Deliveries of any kind (forgotten homework, birthday treats, lunches, etc.) are to be made directly to the office only, not to the classroom.

From the Nurse's Desk

Below you will find information regarding health room procedures. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the health room nurses at 610-473-1770.

Physical & Dental Forms: All state mandated Kindergarten and 3rd grade private dental forms and all Kindergarten private physical exam forms are due now. If you have an upcoming appointment, please notify the health room of the appointment and we will make note of the date in your child’s record.

Mandated Health Screenings: All current state mandates are still in effect. Students in grades K-5 will have their annual health screenings from now through December. If your child does not pass a screening, a referral letter will be sent home for you to follow up with a private physician. For more information please review the Mandated Health Screenings page on the BASD website.

Medication Information: If your child requires prescription or over-the-counter medication while at school, a medication authorization form must be completed by your physician. Once completed, please submit the paperwork, then contact the health room to schedule an appointment to drop off your child’s medication. Prescription medications must be in an original pharmacy labeled container. Over-the-counter medication must be in original packaging. Please refer to the BASD website for more information.

Returning Paperwork: Please return any health room forms (Physical, Dental, Medication) via email if possible. You can scan and email the original document or email a photograph from your phone to either ewismer@boyertownasd.org or ekovach@boyertownasd.org

When to keep your child home:

As stated in the BASD student handbook, if your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, it is recommended that you keep your child home from school and consult with the child’s primary health care provider:

1. A cough interfering with your child’s sleep or ability to participate in school activities

2. A cough that is productive and has phlegm or is associated with fever or trouble breathing.

3. Fever: A temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees without the use of a fever reducing medication. Please note that the student’s temperature should remain normal without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours prior to the return to school.

4. Nausea, Vomiting or diarrhea

5. Unusual skin eruptions, hives or rash.

6. Redness or drainage from the eyes.

Please refer to the BASD student handbook for more information.

COVID-19 Information: If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please fill out the COVID-19 attendance form found on the BASD website in the attendance folder. Students will need to isolate at home for 5 full days. If your child is symptomatic, the first day of symptoms is considered day 0. If your child is not symptomatic, the test date is considered day 0. Students may return on day 6 but must remain masked at school through the end of day 10.

*We recommend keeping a change of clothing in your child’s backpack, regardless of their age, as clothing can become soiled due to a bathroom accident, fall outside in the mud, or because of spilling food/drink.*
