Should I tell the school if my child has special health care needs?

Yes. If your child has a condition such as allergies, asthma, respiratory problems, or any chronic/acute illness it is important that you tell the school nurse  She may need physcian's orders and/or supplies depending on the student's diagnosis. Please meet with the nurse to discuss your child's health needs at the beginning of the school year. She will do everything possible to keep the student safe and healthy.  If your child is injured during the school year,  the nurse should be notified of any restrictions that his/her doctor has ordered.
