News from the Nurse
Returning to full in person learning:
If you child requires any type of medication during the school day, such as an EpiPen, Inhaler, Anti-Epileptic medication, daily medication or PRN medication, please call your doctor to send us over the necessary doctor's orders for your child's specific medications. For your convenience, the doctor's orders can be faxed to us at 508-248-1418. We are asking that all orders be into the school nurse by Friday April, 16, 2021. Parents or Guardians will need to drop off the necessary medication to the school nurse before Friday April 16, 2021. This way we will be prepared for the first full day of school on Monday, April 26, 2021. If you have any questions please contact us.
Physical Exam for Sports:
All students who plan on trying out for school sports, you need an updated physical exam on file before you will be allowed to tryout. We need a copy of the physical exam, a doctor’s note is not acceptable, however for convenience your doctor can fax a physical exam to Mrs. Harrington at 508-248-1418 or email to CHarrington@dcrsd.org . If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact Mrs. Harrington at 508-248-1423 x 1110.
8th Grade Students: If you have a child in 8th grade who currently has medication at school, this includes prescribed, over the counter medication, EpiPens, Inhalers, etc. we will need you to pick your child’s medication up by the last day of school. Any medication not picked up by parents/guardian will be disposed of properly.
Medications at School: If your child takes medication at school, I will be sending home the required forms needed for next year sometime in June. Please be sure to fill these out and return them by the beginning of the year, for your convenience these forms can be sent via fax (508) 248-1418 or via email to CHarrington@dcrsd.org . Otherwise, they can be submitted by mail or in person. As a reminder, all medication must be brought in by the parent or guardian, per the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. I will be in the building on August 26th to collect any medications for the 2019-2020 school year. If you would like to drop off your paperwork and medications sooner than that day please email me at CHarrington@dcrsd.org to set up a time.
