Welcome Back to School

Whew-It’s been a busy start-up in the health office. We’ve gotten quite a few new and transfer students over the summer. I’m still making sure all students have the proper health information on file. Please remember to send in the nurse “emergency forms”. These forms are used in my office; they provide vital information such as any new conditions or health updates you would like to share with me, they give me permission to administer over the counter medication and they provide me with contact phone numbers in an emergency. In the event of an evacuation from Peirce I take these forms out with me. This is the only hard copy we have during this circumstance so it is vital that I have them ASAP.

Vision screening is beginning soon. I will screen every student. Any child who wears glasses for distance will need to wear them during the testing. This screening is for distance and near vision only. It does not test for astigmatism or color deficiency.  

On November 17th the SMILE dental team will be coming back to Peirce. Permission forms will be sent out at the end of October.

Shortly you will be receiving information regarding the town wide flu clinics. These clinics will be held at the Ottoson and AHS. More info  to follow.

Have a beautiful fall weekend!
