    Dear Parent/Guardian:
    Thank you for allowing me to help with meeting your child’s health needs at school. It has been a great year!
    Just a few reminders:
    We DO NOT store medicines at school over the summer.
    ****For safety reasons, we do not send medications home with students. A parent/guardian MUST pick up the medications before the end of the school year. If your child’s medication(s) are not picked up, I will have to destroy them.
    Please stop by the Health Office to pick up your child’s medication(s).
    If you need special arrangements, please call me. My telephone number is listed below.
    Please pick up all medications by June 6, 2019.
    (If medication(s)are  not picked up by above date, I will have to destroy them).
    Thank you for allowing me to serve your child.
    Melissa Poulin, RN, BSN

     

    Reminders from the School Nurse:
    Students may visit the Health Room between 9:30 am to 2:30 pm unless they have an appointment or emergency situation.  The Health Room lunch period is 11:30 am to 12:00 pm between student medication/ appointments.
    Please Remember: When you see the School Nurse and choose to go home, it is not considered "Medically Excused." Only certain symptoms can warrant a medical excuse from the School Nurse.
    Please call or visit the school nurse if your child has any medical conditions that require emergency medications or monitoring. No student should carry any medication on their person at any time without proper paperwork.

    Prescription and non-prescription medication forms are required by  the school to administer any medications. The medication forms and the medication policy can be obtained from the Horry County Schools website or from the school nurse.
    The school nurse will call the parent if your child presents with following condition(s):

    Fever greater than 101 degrees, more than 1 episode of vomiting witnessed, more than 2 episodes of diarrhea, head injury, injury with pain/swelling/deformity, live lice, or other serious conditions that warrant immediate parent notification.
    Please don’t hesitate to call the school nurse for any questions or concerns.
