Welcome to DHS Clinic
Michelle Schulz, RN Laura Saenz
My name is Michelle Schulz. I am the school nurse here at DHS, Ms. Saenz and I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students and their parents. I am looking forward to working with you and your children during the 2018-2019 school year. To ensure your child’s health and safety I would like to share a few items with you.
HEALTH CONCERNS: Please inform your school nurse of any severe allergies, surgeries, accidents or new health problems that occurred during the summer months or which may occur during the school year.
MEDICATIONS: NO child is permitted carry PRESCRIPTION OR OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS to school. If a child, by order of a physician must receive medication at school, medication form will need to be completed. Therefore, a prescription label IS NOT acceptable in lieu of an MD’s order. A written order must be obtained.Our new Medication Permission Form must be completed and signed by both physician and the parent. This form along with the prescribed medication in its original container must be brought to school by the parent/guardian on the first day of school. All medication MUST be administered in the nurse’s office. If you administer medication to your child before he/she comes to school, which could affect their performance, please contact me.
ILLNESS/ABSENCES: Please contact the school office in the morning if your child is to be absent and inform them why he/she will not be attending. If your child has been ill, he/she should be free of fever, vomiting and diahrrea for 24 hours before returning to school.
I hope this information is helpful to you. We hope you have a safe and healthy school year. If we can be of any help throughout the year please don’t hesitate to call us at school.
