HEALTH ROOM HAPPENINGS

Hello everyone! I just have a few reminders since we have been in school for almost ½ of the school year already.

Please remember that:

1. We need parent excuses for any absence or tardy. If your child has been out of school longer than 3 school days the district is requiring a Dr. note or excuse, if you have any questions please feel free to call or email myself or your student’s teacher.

2. Please remember, if your child has been running a temperature above 100 degrees, they must be fever free for at least 24 hours without the aid of Tylenol or Motrin before returning to school.

3. We do not stock any meds in the school, so if your child is running a fever or has pain we cannot medicate them unless you have provide the medication for us. The forms can be found on the district website under health services. All medication whether over the counter or prescription must be brought to the health room by an adult.

4. If your student has been vomiting please keep them at home until they have not vomited for 12 hours and have been able to keep food in their stomach.

5. Please remember that you should be aware that head lice do occur within the school setting the same as outside the school. If you have any questions regarding if your child has head lice, or treatment of it, please feel free to contact me.

6. FYI, at the present time we are seeing a stomach virus, respiratory virus with a high fever and the flu in the health room. I just like to let parents know, so you are aware.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 610-965-1587. Thank you for all you do and for sharing your children with us!

Mrs. Freiwald RN,

Certified School Nurse

PENNIES FOR PATIENTS

Beginning February 23rd we will be kicking off 3 weeks of Pennies for Patients to raise money for the leukemia/lymphoma society. Save your pennies to help patients wth leukemia.

Each year, approximately 4,000 new cases of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) are reported in the United States. Mantle cell lymphoma is one of about 100 different types of lymphoma, a group of cancers that develop when white blood cells in the lymph nodes become malignant and grow uncontrollably.


Despite advances in the treatment of MCL, patients face a challenging prognosis. It is a particularly aggressive disease, with a short remission to standard therapies and a median overall survival of four to five years.


While we know considerably more about MCL today compared to 10 years ago, there is still more work ahead of us to address this urgent, unmet medical need.


That’s why The Sarah Cannon Fund at The HCA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of HCA Healthcare, has committed $5 million to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to support two leading-edge research programs.

  • A team led by Dr. Selina Chen-Kiang at Weill Cornell Medicine will investigate the efficacy of a therapy originally approved for breast cancer for the treatment of MCL patients.
  • At City of Hope, Dr. Larry Kwak and Dr. Michael Friedman will lead a team studying novel immunotherapies to control MCL. Immunotherapy involves harnessing the power of a patient’s own immune system to fight cancer.

LLS and Sarah Cannon share a commitment to advancing therapies for blood cancer patients and providing access to the latest treatments close to home. Together, these research efforts will help accelerate innovative new treatment options for MCL patients.


Please help us continue to fund the most pioneering cancer research of our time.
