Our goal is to keep you as healthy and well informed as possible.
Throughout the school year you may hear us offering encouraging health tidbits. We’d like to encourage you to participate in the breakfast program here at school. Breakfast is the most important meal, and whether you believe it or not your brain needs calories to function if you are starving it before lunch time you might get that “saggy” feeling around 10 or 11 in the morning. We do not give medications on a empty stomach. So please eat your breakfast!
Speaking of that “saggy” feeling, our students here at Tech are allowed to drink water in most of the classrooms. You can carry a water bottle that is clear for water only. We strongly encourage you to drink at least 8 to 10, 8oz bottles of water throughout the day.
We would also like to encourage you to wash your hands ! Good hand washing is the first defense in fighting germs. Common articles in classrooms like pens or the keyboard can be breeding grounds for germs. Please do your part in keeping our school healthy.
The Nurse’s office is also home to the lost & found. If you are missing something, stop buy to see if we have it. All things not claimed within a reasonable amount of time will be donated to charity!
Student Health Is Our Priority
The school nurses’ office is open from 8:30 am until 2:15 pm everyday.
After 2:15 pm our office is open for emergencies, screenings, or missed routine medications only!
Students CANNOT CARRY ANY medications including over the counter medications, such as: Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Cough/Cold medications.
Your parent may send Over the Counter medications to school with a note and the medications will be stored in the nurse’s office until you need them.
If you have a prescription medication that needs to be taken during school hours, please contact the nurses to coordinate time of dose. Appropriate paperwork MUST be signed to administer these medications.
If you have asthma and need to carry an inhaler you must notify us! An asthma form needs to be on file for all personal inhalers.
All students will receive an Emergency Medical Form which must be filled out completely and signed in two places by the Parent/Guardian. (This information is confidential and only shared on a need to know basis).
If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact Mrs. Lynch, MSN, RN or Mrs. Fitler, MSN, RN at 302-854-2819. This is a direct line to the Nurses office.
It may take up to twenty-four hours for an email response. Therefore, please contact us by phone for any urgent medical situations.
