Hi! I am so happy and honored to be your Walsh Elementary School Nurse!
I have been a nurse for almost 25 years – five of those years were school nursing but the last 14 years, I was at Cook Children’s! I hope it’s obvious that my passion is for children! I look forward to partnering with you to support your child’s individual healthcare needs while creating a healthy and safe school environment for all of our awesome students!
A few helpful things to know:
All medication must be age appropriate and provided in its original container.
- Prescription medication: The medication form must be completed and signed by the physician.
- Over the counter medications also require a completed medication form but it does not have to be signed by the physician.
- Inhalers: It is strongly recommended that inhalers be kept in the clinic so the school nurse can assess the student as well as assist in administration. However, if you desire for your child to carry on his/her person, there will be an additional form that must be completed and signed by the doctor (email or call me for this form). Even if your child is going to carry their inhaler on their person, please consider, for safety purposes, keeping a backup in the clinic.
- All medications must be picked up before or on the last day of school or it will be destroyed.
- In order for birthday treats to be shared with your child’s classmates, you must complete and submit a Lauren’s Law form 10 days prior to the day you want to share
- All snacks must be prepackaged that includes a list of its ingredients
- Please do not bring any treats to share that have been prepared in a facility that cooks with or uses nuts
- All students must be included, so students with food allergies must be provided an alternate option
- Snacks will be shared in the last few minutes of lunch
