The objective of our district nursing staff is to support student learning by functioning as health care providers and care managers in the school setting.
Our school nurses:
Promote ideal health practices for students, staff, and the school community.
Serve as consultants for the health concerns of students, families, and staff.
Provide health interventions, education, and referrals to address actual or potential health problems.
Implement health care practices consistent with the National School Nurse Association and OK State Department of Health Standards of Care.
Serve as a link between health care providers, families, staff, and community agencies to support student and family health.
Promote and assist in the control of communicable diseases through immunization programs, early intervention, surveillance, and follow-up of contagious diseases.
As a reminder, our district policy for illness states any student with a fever above 100 degrees, vomiting, diarrhea, or an undiagnosed rash will be sent home.
That student should remain at home until they are:
- Fever free for 24 hours
- No vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours
- In some circumstances, a note from your physician may be required for return to school.
Most importantly they must meet the above stated criteria without the use of medication to control symptoms. Please adhere to these rules and allow your child proper time to recover.
