PROVIDING UPDATED PHYSICALS
Does your student have an appointment for a physical coming up?
Your school nurse does not automatically receive a copy of your student's physical from their healthcare provider.
When your student has an appointment for an annual physical, please ask for a copy to provide to your school nurse so they may update your student's health record.
SEASONAL & ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIES
Does your student have allergies to pollen or other environmental factors? If so, please make sure your school nurse has documentation from the provider indicating their allergies and any treatments required.
