notes from the nurse

My name is Jolene Walker and I am the nurse at Clark-Shaw. This is my fourth school year here and I am so excited to share another year with everyone. I have been a nurse for almost 13 years, spending the last 4 as a school nurse. I just wanted to update parents on a couple of things. If your student requires medication at school, there must be a PPA (parent prescription authorization) form filled out by the prescribing physician. Once this has been done, then the parent or legal guardian may bring the medication to the nurse. Please do not send medication to the school with your student. Also, if your student requires any modifications to their diet while here, please have the physician fill out a diet prescription form so that I can get this to the cafeteria to accommodate them. These forms may be found on our school website or I can send them home with your student.

As you all know, we are still dealing with Covid. Our biggest defense for fighting illnesses is proper hand hygiene and properly covering our coughs and sneezes. Please remind your student to practice good hand hygiene. Also if your student or anyone in the home has tested positive for Covid 19, please keep your student home and contact me for further guidance. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your student's health. You can either email me at jhwalker@mcpss.com or call the school at 251-221-2106. I look forward to another amazing school year!!
