    We encourage communication about your child's health concerns and would be happy to discuss how we can best help your student.  If your child has an accident away from school, is hospitalized, or is receiving special medical attention, please keep us informed.  A healthcare provider must write an order for your child to use crutches or other assistive devices; we will then provide an elevator key to your child for safe ambulation. 
     
    The Nurses' Office is open from 7:15 AM to 2:45 PM on school days.  Please call or email Mrs. Becker if you would like to set up an appointment between 2:45-3:15.

    Highlights of the 2022-2023 Health & Safety Plan are as follows:

    What to do if your child is showing COVID-19 symptoms?
    Students should stay home from school if they are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19. Per our board-approved Health and Safety plan, it is up to each parent/guardian to determine when their child is healthy enough to return to school.

    My child has tested positive for COVID-19. When can he/she return to school?
    Per our board-approved Health and Safety plan, it is up to each parent/guardian to determine when their child is healthy enough to return to school following a positive COVID-19 test. We do encourage families to follow these three basic RECOMMENDATIONS from our school physician (Penn State Health) when their child has tested positive for COVID-19. With parents, guardians, and students following these recommendations on when to return to school, the District hopes to avoid the need to transition to virtual learning due to a COVID-19 outbreak in our schools.

    • RECOMMENDATION #1: Stay home from school for a minimum of five days after testing positive for COVID-19, regardless of how severe the symptoms are.
    • RECOMMENDATION #2: Only return when the student tests negative for COVID-19 OR COVID-19 symptoms are resolving. Resolving symptoms include fever free for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medication AND other COVID- 19 symptoms (cough, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, body aches, chills, fatigue, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, headache, nausea, diarrhea) are improving.
    • RECOMMENDATION #3: While masking is a personal choice, students returning to school are encouraged to wear a face-covering for up to the tenth day after their positive COVID-19 test.
