Tamanend Nurse's Notes


Allergy season will be here before you know it!

We saw a lot of students with flu symptoms over the past few weeks in the health room, but, we seem to have moved past it at this point.

Before you know it, allergy season will be here!

This is a reminder to start that allergy medication before you start to see the pollen everywhere for the best results.

Health Room Updates

  • Heights and weights completed for all PE students
  • Scoliosis completed for all 7th grade students 1st half of year. Parents will receive a blast email in the next month or so regarding scoliosis screenings for 7th grade students currently taking PE.
  • Hearing screenings completed for 7th grade and Special Ed students
  • Vision screenings have been completed for most screenings. You will receive a referral in the mail if your student did not pass the screening. Please return the completed referral.


New apps and websites are emerging all the time and it is important to stay current on what the trends are so that you can monitor what your kids are doing online. The attached article talks about current social media trends.
