    Hello from Nurse/Medication Authorization
    Posted on 03/24/2021

    Hello Jane Addams Families,

    I am the new nurse.

    Medications

    If you are planning on sending your child back to school and they have a life threatening medical condition such as Asthma, Life Threatening Allergies, Epilepsy, Diabetes, etc. please make sure you complete this Medication Authorization Form (see link below) with your child’s care provider and return it to me.  Remember that any medication provided at school, whether it is a cough drop, Tylenol or prescribed medication, needs to have a Medication Authorization form completed.  It is very important to have this completed prior to having your child come into the school, regardless if your child self-administers.  As many of our children have become more independent, if they self-administer their medication, please ensure that this box is checked on the form, so your child can carry the medication with them.

    Immunizations                                                                                         

    We want to protect every student from communicable diseases especially during COVID-19. If your child is lacking school-district required vaccines, you have been contacted or the district has tried to reach you. There are teen vaccines that are not required for school but are recommended by the Center for Disease Control. These are: Hepatitis A (2 doses), Meningococcal B (2 doses) , Meningococcal A(1 or 2 doses), HPV (2 or 3 doses). All of these are available through the School-based health centers or through https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/health/communicable-diseases/immunization/clinics.aspx

     

    Our neighboring Hale High School has a School Based Health Clinic with immunizations available now for ages 4-18. They wish to help you get your students up to date now! Contact Linda Quimby directly at 206-302-1840 for questions or to set up a visit. This is free for ALL Seattle Public School students.

     

    My job is to support your child’s health and learning especially during these challenging times. I can speak to you on the phone, or through online platforms. I can be reached: Nurse Office Phone:  (206) 252-4507 Fax: (206) 743-3198   Days available:  Monday – Friday from 8:30am-4:00pm. If you would like to talk with me outside these listed hours, please ask and I will try to accommodate.

     

    Thank you and looking forward to seeing you children in the schools!  As always, if you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.
