Welcome to the Nurse's Corner

Owee Department

Good Information to Know:

  • Students cannot bring medications to school.

  • If your student has a health condition, written instructions from the doctor and/or from you will help me provide the best possible care.

  • If your student needs an accommodation following an injury, illness, or surgery, please send me a written request from the doctor.  I will do all I can to ensure that those needs are met.

  • We do believe that all students should have adequate health care in order to perform to  the best of their abilities. Please notify me if you would like information about health coverage for your child.

  • Please encourage your children to eat a balanced breakfast and to bring lunch or come prepared to eat the cafeteria lunch. Free and reduced lunch/breakfast applications are available on line and through the cafeteria.

  • We love your students, but please keep them home when they are sick. A student should not come to school if he or she is experiencing fever, vomiting, or diarrhea.
