Atkinson Nurse Notes

Welcome to the Atkinson School Health Office


SPRING ALLERGIES: The warm weather is finally here! If your child has seasonal allergies, please speak to your pediatrician about medications and other treatments. A reminder that all medications given at school (over the counter or a prescription) require a completed Consent for Medication Administration

TICKS: As ticks are out in full force this spring, please remember to check your child when he or she comes in from outdoors. If a child comes to my office with a tick adhered to him or her, the tick is removed and a parent or guardian will be notified.  If a tick is found crawling on a child, it is removed and discarded, but we typically do not call.

SUN AND HEAT SAFETY: Please remember to send your child to school with a water bottle. It is important in the hotter months that our children stay hydrated. If your child burns easily, I also recommend that you apply sunscreen in the morning. Our students go outside at least once each day! 

Please contact me with any questions!
