Field Day Reminders from Nurse Violet
Dear Norris Parents,
Field Day is coming up on May 20th! We will have a great day of fun and games! There are a few things you need to be aware of regarding seasonal allergies, sunscreen and asthma. Please take a moment to review this information to help your child have a great field day!
SEASONAL ALLERGIES: The students will be outside playing in the grass all day. If your child has seasonal allergies, please administer their allergy medicine to them before school on Field Day. FISD does not provide allergy medication, so there is no allergy medication available in the clinic.
SUNSCREEN: Please remember to put sunscreen on your child BEFORE they come to school on Field Day. That way you know they’ve got it on and that it was well-applied. FISD considers sunscreen to be a medication, so it can’t be sent to school without paperwork being completed by your child’s doctor. FISD does not provide sunscreen for students, and teachers may not apply sunscreen to students. Students may not bring sunscreen to school without this paperwork. You are welcome to come to Field Day, and you may bring and apply sunscreen to your own child as needed.
ASTHMA: If your child has asthma and it is possible that they will need asthma medication during Field Day, please be aware of the following:
Per FISD Policy, all asthma medications are to be kept in the clinic and will be administered by Nurse Violet. Students are NOT allowed to carry ANY medication at school unless their doctor has completed a specific form which must also be signed by the parents, nurse and principal.
If your child has an inhaler, it will need to have the Rx label attached either to the box it came in or the inhaler itself. Please also send in your child’s spacer if they have one. If you no longer have the label or box, your pharmacy will be happy to print a new label for you for free.
If your child uses nebulized asthma medication, it has to have the Rx label on the box and I will need the mask, chamber and tubing as well. I have a neb machine here in the clinic that we can use. If you no longer have the label or box, your pharmacy will be happy to print a new label for you for free.
Please go to the link on my website (found below this section) to find the forms you will need to complete and submit to me along with your child’s asthma medication:
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I’m always happy to help!

Still need to order a Yearbook?
A limited quantity of yearbooks are available for purchase. Please log onto your student’s My Payments Plus account— www.mypaymentsplus.com-- on Monday, May 16, 2016 at 8am. You will see an option to purchase underneath the Cafeteria Account Payments section. The cost is titled “Norris 15-16 School Yearbook”.

All yearbooks through My Payments Plus will be distributed on 5/31/16.
