Nurse's Office

A Healthy Learning Environment

Our school nurse works hard to maintain a healthy environment at Bear Path School. Following the established illness protocols for your child will help keep our school environment healthy. 

Please inform the school nurse if your child develops a contagious illness, has a change in overall health, or has a new injury.


Your child's School Nurse works hard to maintain a healthy environment.

Here are some helpful reminders and protocols that are in place to help her attain this goal.

  • Call the School Secretary each day your child is absent.
  • Any child with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher must stay home until fever-free without the use of medication for 24 Hours.
  • Any child with vomiting and/or diarrhea will need to stay home for 24 hours after the last event.
  • Any child recently diagnosed with pink eye (conjunctivitis) or strep throat must receive 24 hours of medication prescribed by a health care provider before returning to school.
  • No medication will be administered at school, even over the counter medications like Tylenol, without the proper written medication authorization form completed by your child’s health care provider.
  • Please keep the school informed of any changes to your emergency contact information.
  • Please provide a change of clothes, labeled with your child’s name, for surprise accidents or spills.

Your School Nurse will communicate with you as needed about changes in your child’s health and of any assessments that are performed at school.

We look forward to getting to know you and your child and are available to discuss concerns or questions you might have.

Have a Great Year!
