Important Health Reminders & Information

 

 

 

·      Does your student have a health concern (asthma, diabetes, seizures, severe allergies, etc.)? If so, please contact the school nurse right away.  Medical care plans, rescue inhalers, epipens, etc. are required and must be in place by the first day of school for your student to attend.

                                 

·      Students are not allowed to bring medications to school without a doctor’s note! This includes Tylenol, Ibuprofen, cough drops, antibiotics, and any over-the-counter or prescription drugs.  All medications at school require a signed doctor’s note (new note needed each year) and must be brought to the health room by an adult.

 

·      Truman MS has a “24-hour rule” for vomiting and fevers.  Any student that vomits and/or has a temperature of 100+ degrees, they must stay home until they are symptom free for 24-hours without the aid of medication.  Please help us keep other students healthy by keeping these sick kids home.

 

·      Crutches, walking boots, ace wraps, and/or a wheelchair at school requires a doctor’s note.  Without a doctor’s note, students will not be allowed to use the device(s) until a note is received.

 

·      If your child plans on playing sports, have your doctor complete a sports physical form asap.  Sports physicals are required each year for students to participate in school sports.  Middle School physical forms found at: www.tacoma.k12.wa.us/information/departments/athletics.

 

·      Vision and hearing screening will be Monday November 16th, 2015 f or all 7th graders. Please make sure your student brings his/her glasses! 

 

·      Please have a CURRENT and working phone number on file.  It is very important that the Health Room be able to reach you should your child become sick or injured.  To update your information, email bplank@tacoma.k12.wa.us.
