Nurse's Notes


7th and 8th Grade Spring Sports
Signups will be ONLINE through Family ID – you should receive an email regarding the registration process. Registration information can be found on the ENMS homepage.  Online registration will begin on Monday, March 4th and close on Monday, March 18thPLEASE REGISTER FOR ONLY ONE SPORTTry outs will begin on Monday, March 25th.   Please remember that even if you have already played a sport this year, you must be cleared for each individual sport.  If you haven't played a sport yet this school year, and are interested in playing now, please see Mrs. Enright to make sure you have a physical done within the last year on file in the health office.  

The school physician will be at ENMS on Thursday, March 21, 2024 at 9:00 a.m.  He will be completing physicals on all students wishing to play a spring sport that do not have a physical completed within the last year, and are unable to obtain one from their private physician before spring sports. Please see Mrs. Enright if you want to be seen by the school doctor so you can be screened beforehand. 
As a reminder, all 5th and 7th graders are required by NYS to have a physical.  These physicals must include height, weight, blood pressure, vision, and hearing. If vision and hearing are not completed by your private MD, the school nurse will complete the screening.

A few small reminders
If your child is ill PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME and call attendance or the nurse’s office to alert us. 
The CDC and the New York State Department of Health recommend that students and staff remain out of school for at least 24 hours after having a fever.  Also note that students should be fever-free for 24hrs WITHOUT the use of fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol and Motrin. The teachers and staff here at ENMS are working together to remind the students to wash their hands and to cover coughs and sneezes.  Please encourage your children to think about safety and wash their hands more frequently. Please report any diagnosed illnesses to me. Thank you for your cooperation.
When a student sustains an injury and is given a 5-minute pass or a pass for assistance with books from the doctor, it is a privilege and should not be abused.  The pass is to allow the injured student to get to their next class safely without the crowds in the halls.   A doctor’s note is required to be excused from PE/sports due to an extended injury or illness.  To return to PE and sports, a doctor’s clearance note is needed.  The Doctor can fax the clearance to 631-262-6898 or email it to me at or the clearance note can be brought into the Nurse's office. 
Please speak with your child and remind them that if they don’t feel well, they need to GO TO THE NURSE first and not call or text a parent to be picked up.  Phones are supposed to be off and away during class.  I will call you after I see your child.  It becomes difficult when parents come to pick up their “sick” child when they have not been seen in the Health Office.
Please remember to have your child bring in a refillable water bottle daily so they can utilize the water filtration stations in the halls and stay hydrated throughout the school day.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
Looking forward to spring!
