Friendly Reminders:

  • If a student has a fever over 100.0 degrees, vomiting, headache, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, significant congestion (that’s not allergies), communicable rash (scarlet fever, impetigo) they must stay home.
  • If your student is sick, please let the office or nurse know what symptoms they are experiencing when you call in.
  • If you have not sent in your Health Forms to the health office, please do so by 9/6/22.

We’ve had 12 cases of Covid in the first 2 weeks of school. Please remind your children to continue to be cautious.

News from VT Department of Health:

The Covid Omicron variant booster will likely be available after September 6th at doctors’ offices and pharmacies.

Friendly reminders about medications and health conditions:

Prescription medications:

  • Must be kept in the Health Office
  • Parents/guardians must get a current medication order to the Health Office before medication can be given at school.
  • If a student wants to self-carry an inhaler or epi-pen, the Health Office needs documentation of permission from a medical provider. 

Over-the-counter medications:

  • Students require written parent/guardian approval to take over-the-counter medications at school; please provide a written note to the Health Office or email Nurse Ellen directly. 
  • All medications will be administered in the Health Office or in the Main Office if Nurse Ellen is unavailable.
