The Hudson School District Nurses are excited to have the students back in the building for the 2020/2021 school year. Considering the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have instituted some changes to our daily office routine to insure the health and safety of students and staff.
Please review the most up to date list of COVID-19 symptoms and assess your student every morning prior to them leaving home. Per the CDC {Centers for Disease Control) the symptoms of COVID-19 are:
• Cough
• Fever
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Fatigue
• Muscle or body aches
• Headache
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
• Diarrhea
Any ONE of the above symptoms that your child exhibits before the school day starts requires them to remain home from school that day. Parents are advised to contact their child's medical provider for further advise as well as COVID-19 testing.
If your child exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19 during the school day, immediate dismissal is required, and medical evaluation and COVID-19 testing is encouraged .
We realize that students may exhibit some COVID-19 symptoms for reasons that are not related to COVID-19. We ask that you speak with your child's doctor regarding your concerns and provide the school nurse with a written note from the doctor detailing your child's medical condition and what symptoms they exhibit due to that condition ( examples: seasonal allergies, asthma, frequent headaches, etc.). Due to the serious nature of COVID-19, a verbal explanation from a parent of a child's medical condition,
that may cause them to exhibit COVID-19 like-symptoms, does not exempt them from the absent/dismissal procedure of the school district . Please notify the school nurse at the beginning of the school year of any conditions.
Medications during the school day:
In order to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus from student to student due to an exposure while at the nurse's office, we encourage you to speak with your child's doctor about medication that may have normally been given during the school day, and ask if the medication administration time can be adjusted so that your child's medication can be administered at home. If after speaking with your child's doctor, your child still requires medication to be administered during the school day, please provide the school nurse with written doctor's orders for the 2020/2021 school year as well as a 30 day supply of medication in the original prescription bottle. As always, all medication is to be brought into the school by a parent, not sent into school with the student.
Lastly, please provide the nurse with a copy of your child's most recent physical exam and immunization record. Please contact the school nurse at your child's school with any questions or concerns.
