School Nurse Candy Wingrove, RN
(303) 326-1537 (direct line)

It is extremely important for parents to advise the school nurse if a child has health problems or allergies.  The school must be notified when a student is diagnosed with a communicable illness such as measles, chicken pox, etc.   A student with a serious health condition (examples include diabetes, seizures or severe allergies) must have an individual health plan, written by the school nurse, on file before attending school. 

Health Information Card

Every year, a Health Information Card needs to be completed for each student.   It lists health concerns, medications, hearing or vision conditions and special education.  Even though a child may not have a significant health condition, parents are expected to complete and sign the form for the school health records.  This information helps the school nurse to understand and support any health needs a student may have. 

Medication

For all medications, a completed medication administration authorization form is required in the clinic.  Prescription medication must be in the original, properly labeled container.  The label should specify child’s name, name of drug, dosage, physician and directions for administration.  For all prescription and non-prescription medications, both parent/guardian and physician signatures are required.  All medication must be administered through the school office.
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) may be given to a student with signed parent permission on the Student Health Information form.

General Guidelines for Keeping Children Home Due to Illness

If your child has the following symptoms, he or she should remain at home.  If your child becomes ill at school, we will call you to discuss symptoms observed at school and the potential need to take him/her home.

  • Temperature above 100 degrees (orally) or 99 degrees(axillary)
  • Strep throat, unless a child has been on antibiotics for 24 hours
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • A respiratory infection that causes the child to cough constantly, or have yellowish green discharge from the nose
  • Rash or skin lesions not diagnosed or being treated by a physician
  • Contagious diseases, such as chicken pox
