Key Information to Communicate to the School Nurse

**Please inform your school nurse if your student has a diagnosis of flu or strep as well as any time your student is tested for COVID-19 **

Nurse Emergency Information:
All schools use the Nurse Emergency Information Data from Powerschool.  Information is used   as a means of communication of medical alerts and/ or conditions as well as permission to administer medications during the school day. 

  • It is essential that all students have completed emergency cards on file in each Health Office so that nurses are able to reach parents/guardians. Please keep school nurses updated with the most current cell/work/home phone numbers, best way to be contacted, and please provide updated emergency contact numbers
