Notes from the Nurse

Well it is hard to believe that we are the end of another school year, for me the end of my 27th year as the nurse for this fantastic school. I feel like the image below is fitting for the year we have had battling the nuisance of head lice, but in true Clinton fashion we persevered. Keep checking over the summer as sports, sleep-overs and camps are great places for the spread of lice.

All medications must be picked up before the end of school or on the last day. I will send home the medication permission slips for the 2016-2017 school year so you will be able to have them completed over the summer, just a reminder no medications can be administered at school without these completed forms.

If your child has a physical exam or receives any immunizations over the summer please send me a copy in September so I can update his/her record.

Make it a point this summer to make memories as a family, play, dance and be silly. Take pictures, have picnics, time goes by so quickly.

Most importantly to our fifth-graders, I wish you much success and happiness as you move on to middle school. I will miss you but I know you will make us all proud.

Have a happy and healthy summer. See you in September.

Your Nurse,
Joann Harrigan
