  • Injuries or Prolonged Illness
    Please inform the school nurse if your child has suffered a serious injury or a prolonged illness.  A note from the attending physician outlining specific restrictions, if any, must be presented to the school nurse when your child returns to school.  

    This is particularly important in orthopedic injuries as limited physical mobility may restrict participation in school activities.
