Philosophy: 
The registered nurses of the Marcellus Central School District believe a healthy child in a safe and healthy environment is the best learner. 
   


Our mission is: 
  • to support student success by helping them reach their maximum health potential in the school setting with: 
    • timely and accurate nursing assessment for students and staff.
    • intervention that is appropriate.
    • evaluation and referral for our students and colleagues.
       
  • to contribute to a healthy school environment for all through: 
* infection control.
* accident prevention.
* health promotion/education.
* collaboration with school and community resources. 

Health concerns:

Please keep your school nurse updated on your child's health status, such as surgeries, medications, illness/diseases, new diagnoses or other conditions that might affect your child's school performance.  Please make sure the emergency card is completed, signed and updated as needed.


Medication in school:

If it is necessary for a child to take or use medicine (prescription or over-the-counter) during school hours, the following rules apply:

  • The parent or guardian must submit a signed request to the school nurse.

  • The family physician must also submit a written request, detailing the frequency and dosage of the medication and the purpose for which it is being taken.

  • All medicines must be delivered to the nurse by a parent or guardian.

  • The medication will be kept in the nurse’s office and will be administered by or under the supervision of the nurse, unless the student has an order from a physician to carry and self-administer medication (i.e., an inhaler).

  • The medication must be in the prescription bottle or over-the-counter container.

LEAD TESTING IN SCHOOLS

On September 6, 2016 the Governor signed into law Chapter 296 of the Laws of 2016. This law requires school districts and BOCES to conduct testing of school potable water sources in occupied buildings and to monitor for lead contamination and remediate where necessary.  This legislation also requires that we notify the general public of the test results and, when applicable, efforts to remedy sources of water containing lead levels greater than or equal  to 15 parts per billion.

Results of testing of school potable water sources can be found by clicking on this link.
