Letter from School Nurse

First Day of School Letter from the School Nurse

Important! Please Read Thoroughly! Sheila Kohls, RN

Welcome (and Welcome Back!) to John Stanford International School! The Health Room/Nurses’ Office is located inside the school’s Main Office. I will be working every other Monday and every Thursday at JSIS.

Student Health Information Form Please complete the Health Registration Form and return it (found in your packet). I look forward to working with you and your student to manage any acute or ongoing health
concerns. It is especially helpful to have current phone numbers and to be aware of any health related issues that may impact your student’s ability to learn, attend class regularly or to get about the building safely.

Medications at School? Will your child be requiring any daily or as needed medications while at school? We must have an Authorization For Medication at School form on file with the school. This includes inhalers, allergy medications and over-the counter meds like Tylenol, Ibuprofen, topical creams. Forms may be picked up at main office or the staff or I can email it to you.

Please be sure that we have both your signature and your healthcare provider’s signature on the form before turning it in. Please have this done before school starts. Pursuant to RCW: 28A.210.380, Washington State Law, the school must have the medication(s) to treat your child’s Life Threatening condition (Asthma, Food Allergy, Seizures, ect.) by the first day of school. The form must be renewed each school year.

No medications needed during school? There is no need to complete the Authorization Med form.

Immunizations Immunizations are important to keep all our students safe and healthy. Moreover, they are required for continued attendance at school. Please check with your Health Care Provider to be sure your child is up-to-date on Immunizations!

Vision & Hearing Screens Vision & Hearing screenings are typically done in the Fall. If you would like to volunteer to help with the screenings, PLEASE let me know. You do not need to have previous experience or formal training in order to help. If your child does not pass on a 2nd re-screen; you will be notified that further evaluation is advised.

Is My Child Too Sick To Go To School? Please familiarize yourself with the form in packet titled: ?Is My Child Too Sick To School?. Thank you for your support to keep students safe & healthy!

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
