Nurse's News Bites

We are here to help keep students and staff safe and healthy.  This year we need the help of our Mustang Community to be successful.  
1.  Clean your hands frequently and well
2. Wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.  In school that means on the bus, in the hallways and when participating in group activities.
3.  Check your child's temperature before coming to school
4.  Keep them/ stay home if ill.  COVID-19 has a range of symptoms.  Please keep your child at home if they have ONE of these - fever 100.4F or greater, new cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, vomiting, diarrhea OR TWO of these - congestion/running nose, nausea, chills, muscle aches or sore throat.

Required exams

Students in grades 7, 3 and Kindergarten must have a completed dental exam on file with the school. Students in grades 11, 6 and Kindergarten must have a completed physical exam on file with the school. Exam Forms can be found under Parents>Resources>Parent Documents>Health Forms.

Vaccine Requirements

All students enrolling in West Perry in grades Kindergarten through 12 must have the state required immunizations. Students in 7th grade and above are also required to have a tetanus (Tdap) and meningitis booster. New requirements for the 2017-18 school year: Proof of vaccination must be provided within the first 5 days of school and seniors must provide proof of at least one dose of meningitis vaccine after their 16th birthday.

Keeping your child home

The school nurses work on the assumption that you have made the decision your child is well enough to attend school.  Please consider keeping your child at home if he or she: has a fever of 100 degrees or higher (without being medicated), has been vomiting, has a severe sore throat, or other symptoms that would prevent him or her from participating in class. Please contact your school nurse with questions or concerns regarding sending your student to school.  Click here for more suggested sick day guidelines.
