Welcome to the Atkinson School Nurse Website
I hope all your children are off to a wonderful start to the school year.
I ask that any outstanding health forms be completed and returned as soon as possible. These include immunization forms, medication forms and health care plans. Immunization information is state mandated for school ENTRY.
This year parents are asked to go to the Power School Parent Portal and enter Health and Emergency information. Health information is only available to me to insure student confidentiality. Please remember to click the submit button after you have clicked the button that you have reviewed this information for the 2013-2014 school year so that all the information will be recorded.
Also, when you are completing Emergency Contacts these must be people other than the parents whom I could contact in the event I cannot reach mom or dad. Parents will always be contacted first!
I plan to complete yearly vision and hearing screening of all students during the month of October. I am sure your children will do well following directions and completing the task. If your child wears glasses please be sure they have them as students are tested with glasses on. If your child does not pass the screening you will receive a letter from me through the mail requesting an appointment with an eye or ear doctor. If you do not receive a letter from me it means your child successfully completed the assessment.
I look forward to a wonderful year with your children. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
