Teri Alvarez, RN
Keeping your students healthy and safe is my priority. To accomplish this I need your help. Please notify the school of any health changes throughout the year. Students must be fever, vomit, and diarrhea free for 72 hours before returning to school.
If your students has Asthma, Seizures, Diabetes, or Sting/ Food Allergy their Action Plan needs to be update annually with their physicians signature. If your student requires daily medication it must be brought to the office by a parent/ guardian.
I am available during school hours, Monday- Friday. Please feel free to contact me at 562-4148.
Vision, hearing, and spinal screenings will be done according to current Missouri Department of Health guidelines. If you do NOT want your child screened you will need to notify me.
The school nurse is happy to assist students who need medication at school. Most medications, even if needed 3 times a day, can be given at home. In the event a student needs medication at school, the medication must be in the original container labeled by the pharmacy or physician, and brought to school by an adult. Children are not allowed to carry medication at school, outside of carrying epinephrine, insulin and asthma inhalers. You may have the pharmacist prepare another container to be kept here at school. A permission form must also be filled out by the parent/guardian prior to medication administration. These forms are located at school or on the school nurse web site. The 1st dose of any medication will not be given at school. Any medications remaining at the end of the school year will be destroyed if not picked up by a parent or guardian.
Your child may be eligible for MC+ if:
They are under 19 years old
They have been uninsured for 6 months or more
Your family’s income follows the required guidelines
