Health Resources

Flu Vaccination

Inez Parents,

Getting vaccinated against the flu is recommended yearly by the CDC and can keep you from getting the flu, make the flu less severe if you do get it and keep you from spreading flu to your family and other people.

Thank you for keeping your children healthy and in school!

Nurse

Inez has the services of a half-time registered nurse and full time health assistant.  If there are any health concerns or other issues we should be familiar with, please let the nurse or health assistant know.

Immunizations– In accordance with state law, all students are required to have up-to-date immunizations.  If you have any questions regarding the status of your child’s immunizations, contact the school nurse.  Your child cannot attend school unless immunizations are current.

In case of Injury or illness we must be able to reach you and your emergency contact if necessary.  It is very important that you give us accurate and current information.  Please notify us of any changes in phone number(s), address, employment or name and number of family or friend to call in case of any emergency.

Medications– If a prescription medication is necessary during the school hours, the nurse must have a doctor’s order before the medication can be given at school.  A prescription medication must be in a pharmacy labeled container.  The nurse needs a note from the parent for any over the counter medication if it is taken for 5 days or less and the medication must be in the manufacturer’s labeled container.  If it is taken more than 5 consecutive days, a doctor’s order is needed.

Please remember to let the office know when you change telephone numbers or addresses. Thank you.

Key to Healthy Snacking

A key to healthy snacking is having the right foods on hand. Try these ideas for stocking your pantry with foods your kids will eat.

• Replace potato chips with baked veggie, pita or tortilla chips
• Choose a variety of whole-grain cereals, crackers, bagels, rice cakes, and oatmeal.
• Fruit is always healthy. Try applesauce, canned fruits and dried fruits like raisins, apples, figs and blueberries.
• Seeds such as sunflower or pumpkin seeds, are filled with minerals. Pistachios or mixed nuts make a tasty, high-fiber snacks.

Wash Hands

THE SINGLE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF GERMS  IS  HAND WASHING

We can set a good example for our children and students by washing our hands before we eat, after using the restroom, and after playing with dogs, cats, or other pets and after playing outside.  Always remind your child to wash his or her hands.
