Our School Nurse program is staffed by nurses from Community Health Network and will
provide limited services to all students, including but not limited to - screening for signs
of illness, first aid/emergency care, referral to health providers in the community, nutrition services, health education, health screenings and immunization information. This is a School clinic and all records are maintained by the School. There is no charge to you for the services received.
If your child needs prescription or over the counter medicine, management of chronic
health conditions or any health needs requiring a physician order while in school, your
written permission is required, in advance. In an emergency situation, to prevent
death or serious injury, the School Nurse and School staff will act to prevent such injury
or death and stabilize the situation
At Home Learning Kit Reminder
We ask that you please keep those safely at home, and do not use them until directed by your teacher. If you didn't pick it up during the Open House, we have sent this home in your child's backpack. Please take that out and keep it safely at home. (We don't want our kids carrying around a heavy bag!)
Thanks in advance for your help!
Car Rider Map and Procedures
Each day we enjoy interacting with our families as they drop off their kids and pick them up. Thank you for your warm greetings and smiles.
As you know, safety is our number one priority. We have a safety concern, and we need your help with it to keep our arrival and dismissal safe and efficient.
We have had parents become impatient and try to get around the car line. They have tried to drive straight through to the Kindergarten Academy without getting into the JGE/JGKA joint car line. We have had parents become impatient and drive around cars in the car line. Both of these scenarios are dangerous for our families and students. We ask that all parents stay in the car line and follow the direction of the staff members.
We will do our very best to move the line as quickly as possible, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our procedures.
