The mission of Madison County Schools Health Services is to foster the growth, development and educational achievement of all students by promoting health and wellness, in a safe and supportive environment.
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Welcome to Moores Mill Intermediate School. I will be taking care of your child’s health needs during the school day. I am looking forward to meeting you and your student. Promotion of good health and the prevention of the spread of disease are two ways school nurses serve students and staff. If your student has additional medical needs such as medication administration, asthma, allergies, diabetes, seizures or a cardiac condition, please contact me at 256 851-4700 or email me @ email@example.com.
Listed below are Madison County School policies regarding illness in school:
Notification – Parents are not routinely notified for minor injuries or visits to the school nurse. Parents will be notified for significant head injuries, fever > 100 f and/or suspected communicable diseases. If your child soils his/her clothing, you will be asked to bring clothing to school and assist your child with changing and personal hygiene. We cannot transport soiled clothing on the bus. Soiled clothing may be held up to 24 hours prior to being discarded. Parents are asked to pick up any child with a fever > 100 f or when vomiting or diarrhea is present.
Students should be free from fever, vomiting and diarrhea for 24 hours without the help of medication before returning to school.
Medication – If a child requires medication at school a PPA (parent/provider authorization form) must be signed by the parent/guardian and physician. Individual Health Plans (IHP) will be created by the parent and nurse when medical orders and medication is delivered to school. Students are NOT permitted to transport medication without written authorization by their physician. Medical orders and IHP’s are created yearly and updated with all medication changes. Parents may pick up their unused medication during the last week of the school year. Medication not picked up will be disposed of according to MCBOE policy.
Prevention of Illness – Good handwashing is the best defense against the spread of illness. Make sure your student washes his/her hands frequently with soap and water and does NOT share food or drink with other students.
Donations – The school nurse is always in need of latex free band aids, small baggies, tissues, feminine hygiene items and disinfecting wipes/spray. If you would like to send any of these items to school, it would be greatly appreciated.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with medical concerns. My school hours are 7 am to 3 pm.
