WELCOME TO THE NURSE’S OFFICE!
Middle School Students
Parents of incoming 7th graders: Please remember to have your child up to date on all vaccinations before the first day of school on August 13th. All 7th graders who haven’t received a state exemption must receive a Tdap booster vaccination to start the 7th grade. If they do not receive this booster by August 13th, they will not be allowed to start the first day and parents will be called and asked to pick up their child.
It is important to note: The Dtap and Tdap are NOT the same vaccination and an Adult TD will also not be accepted by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. You may get this vaccination at your primary care physician or you may call the Delaware County Health Department at 918-253-4511 to determine if they are giving child vaccinations at this time.
If your child has already had this booster vaccination and it is on the shot record the school has on file, there is no action you need to take. However, if your child needs this Tdap booster, you will need to bring verification in the form of your child’s shot record to the NURSE’S OFFICE or you may email a copy of it at any time to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
High School Students
Students, before school starts on the first day please remember to check in any medications you will be taking at school on a daily basis to my office. There is a form your parents need to sign and return to my office.
Parents, please make sure your student turns in to the nurse’s office any over-the-counter medications they may keep on their person. It is against school policy for students to keep any medication on their person at any time.
Also, parents if your child has a health condition that is newly diagnosed, has changed over the summer, or you would just like to refresh my memory of his or her health concern, please come discuss this information with me. It is so important that I know every student’s health history. This will enable me to give your child the very best care he or she deserves. You may reach me by my phone number listed below but I will be honest; because I’m frequently between two buildings, I may not be in to take your phone call. The surest way to contact me is by my email. I look forward to hearing from you this year. I’m sure it will be a safe and healthy school year.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Stephanie Catlett BS, RN
