                                ATTENTION PARENTS:

  • NYS requires physicals for all new entrants, Pre-K or K, 2nd, 4th, 7th and 10th graders.  A Dental Certificate is also requested for the same grade levels.  Please provide your school nurse with copies of physicals, immunizations, and certificates so we may update your child's health record.  Students that have not met the NYS physical requirement may be scheduled for a physical with our school physician.

 

  • Please notify the Main Office whenever there is a change in your child's contact numbers.  It is important that we are able to reach you as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your cooperation.

ATTENTION PARENTS OF STUDENTS IN GRADES K, 2, 4, 7, 10 AND NEW ENTERERS

 

NYS now requests all students in Grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new enterers to provide the Health Office with a Dental Exam Certificate.  Please call your child's dentist to arrange an appointment for an exam and return the certificate to your child's school nurse.  If your child has not seen a dentist due to cost factor, or lack of dental insurance, please consider calling the Wayne-Rushville Dental Center (see below).  Go to the link below to make a copy of the Dental Exam Certificate that you can bring to your child's dentist, and then return it to the health office.

 

Dental Health - Taking good care of your teeth is an important part of good health.  Regular dental exams and treatments will help you avoid dental problems and preserve healthy teeth that will last a lifetime.  TheWayne-Rushville Dental Center, located at the Wayne County Public Health Offices on Nye Road in Lyons is now accepting patients for affordable dental care.  They offer screenings, regular exams, school dental certificates, x-rays, fillings, sealants and other services as needed.  All insurance carriers are accepted, such as Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus, Medicaid and all other state-sponsored insurance programs.  If you do not have dental insurance, they offer a sliding scale fee for services for you and your family.  If you have any questions, please call your school nurse.

 

 

 

Is My Child Too Ill to Attend School?

 

Parents are often confronted with this decision when their child complains of not feeling well.  The guidelines shown below may be helpful to you.  It will not cover every medical condition and does not take the place of seeking medical attention.  Please consult your doctor for specific medical advice.

 

Fever - 100 degrees or higher - A fever is a sign of illness.  A child with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher should not attend school.  The child should be free of fever for 24 hours before returning to school.

 

Sore throat/Colds/Cough - Minor cold symptoms are common and usually don't interfere with school attendance.  A persistent, frequent cough and /or constant nasal drainage may affect your child's performance at school, and he/she may be more comfortable at home.

 

Rash - A rash may cover the entire body or only one area.  A child that has a rash that is draining, has open areas or is causing the child to itch excessively should not attend school.  A rash accompanied with other symptoms such as: a fever, sore throat, irritability, vomiting etc. should not attend school.

 

Vomiting/Diarrhea - A child who has vomited should wait 24 hours and be able to retain solid food before returning to school.  A child who is having frequent diarrhea stools should not attend school.  If there is cramping/abdominal pain with diarrhea, the student may be more comfortable at home.
