I am looking for a few articles of clothing to be used here at school if a student should be in need.

Welcoming New and Returning Students
Welcome to the new and returning parents/guardians! Just a few reminders and updates for the upcoming school year.
1. DIETARY RESTRICTIONS: If your student has any dietary restrictions (ALLERGIES-DIABETIES-INTOLERANCES) and you would like them to order school lunch, please review the menus at the start of each month then contact Gail Oliveira at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-646-4401 and review ingredients, carbohydrate counts, and decide which options are appropriate for them to order. Once your decision is made, please send in a note to the nurse stating that you have contacted food services and which lunches will be ordered (this can be done daily or weekly). This will allow for a smooth/safe food service. If your student has dietary restrictions and you have not contacted food service and/or the nurse they should be brining in a lunch from home. Please remember ingredients and carbohydrate can change frequently
2. If you wish to keep a change of clothing for your student at school, please place in a ziplock bag and label with a studentís name and teacher. These will be stored with the nurse.
3. If your student has a temperature or 100 degree or greater, please keep them home until they are fever free without medicine for 24 hours. If your student acquires a temperature of 100 degrees or greater they will be sent home from school. Secondary to this policy it is important we have an UPDATED emergency contact and pick up sheet at school.
4. If your student will not be attending school, please call and let us know their name, their teacherís name, and reason for the absence. When your student returns to school please provide a note for the absence, A Doctorís note stating they have seen the student will be considered an excused absence.
5. The nurse cannot dispense any medicine at school (even over the counter medicine) without a Doctorís order and Parental consent; both sheets are available at the nurseís office. No medicine should be brought in through a backpack.
Please review and if there are any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 508-675-7899.
Thank you Susan Notarangelo

Student Illness Guidelines:
Please keep the school informed of any illnesses or restrictions that your child may have. Good communication between school and home is essential.
Although good attendance is important, there are times when it is best for a child to stay at home. Please follow these guidelines to determine if you should keep your child home from school:
*If your child has a fever, they CANNOT be in school. Anything 100° & above is considered a fever.
*Students MUST be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
*If your child has vomited or had diarrhea in the last 24 hours, please keep them home at least one more day.
*Students must have a doctor’s note for an absence due to illness to be excused.
*If you suspect your child has conjunctivitis (pink eye) or strep throat, they should be seen be a doctor before coming to school. A doctor’s note is required before returning to school. Students needs to be on the prescribed medication for 24 hours before returning to school for either conjunctivitis (pink eye) or strep throat.
If it is necessary for a student to take any form of medication at school, a special form with details required by the nurse must be filled out by a parent/guardian, completed by a physician and sent to school. Medications MUST be in the original labeled container, it MUST be brought to school by the parent/guardian and NOT sent to school with the child. If the proper procedure is not followed, the medication may not be given or taken. At no time will a pupil take any kind of medication on his/her own. All medications will be kept and dispensed only in the nurse's office.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school nurse.
