We’ve made it to March, and as predicted, it’s in like a lion…..

Initial height, weight, vision and hearing screenings have been completed at last; scoliosis screenings for students in grades 5 and 7 are due in early April, and blood pressure checks for some students remain. You may receive follow up calls concerning outcomes of referrals sent home and not returned.

In the meantime, a gentle reminder to call in absences, send in absentee notes, obtain MD notes with diagnoses when a sick visit is required, and return records of vaccines administered and physicals performed (particularly for 5th gr. students).

Finally, please advise teachers of all planned absences as soon as anticipated so that your children will learn responsibility for time missed and be able to complete assignments in a timely fashion.

Thank you,
Mrs. Sidebottom
School Nurse
