ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE SCHOOL NURSE.
Students may not carry any medication on them during the
school day. Please do not send Tylenol, Motrin, or any other over the
counter or prescription medication in with your child. Inhalers may be
carried only if there is an order from the doctor in the health office
for your child to self-carry. All medications, including Tylenol or
Motrin, must be kept in the Health Office. If your child needs
medication during the school day, please contact me for the appropriate
forms or you can download them from the school website. Parents are to
bring all required medications in to the health office - students are
not to bring in any medication at any time.
END OF YEAR MEDICATION PICKUP -
Medications and inhalers that have been used by your child during the
2017-2018 school year must be picked up by an adult from the Health
Office by Monday, June 18, 2018. Medications and inhalers cannot be
stored, saved or reused for the next school year in the Health Office.
All mediations and inhalers will be discarded.
Just a reminder-
Any student who had a medical excuse from gym due to an injury, must
submit a Doctor's note to clear the student. This will allow the student
to participate in gym or sports during the upcoming year. The Doctor
can fax the clearance to 262-6601 or the clearance can be brought into
the Nurse's office. If you have any questions, feel free to call the
nurse, Denise Fiorito, at (631) 262-6755.
If your child is not feeling well-
Please check your child's temperature if they are not feeling well. 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 NMS are working together to remind the
students to wash their hands and to cover coughs and sneezes. Please
report any diagnosed illnesses to me. Thank you for your cooperation in
our attempt to keep our school a healthy, learning environment.
If you have any questions please call me at 262-6755.
