MEDICATIONS:

ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE SCHOOL NURSE.

Medication-
Students may not carry any medication on them during the school day. Please do not send Tylenol, Motrin, or any other over the counter or prescription medication in with your child. Inhalers may be carried only if there is an order from the doctor in the health office for your child to self-carry. All medications, including Tylenol or Motrin, must be kept in the Health Office. If your child needs medication during the school day, please contact me for the appropriate forms or you can download them from the school website. Parents are to bring all required medications in to the health office - students are not to bring in any medication at any time.

Early winter sports will begin Monday, November 6. Sign up for boy's basketball and girl's volleyball will begin Oct 30 through Nov 3 during lunch periods in the nurse's office. An updated physical is needed and a pre-participation evaluation form must be signed by a parent to be cleared.

Just a reminder- 
Any student who had a medical excuse from gym due to an injury, must submit a Doctor's note to clear the student. This will allow the student to participate in gym or sports during the upcoming year. The Doctor can fax the clearance to 262-6601 or the clearance can be brought into the Nurse's office. If you have any questions, feel free to call the nurse, Denise Fiorito, at (631) 262-6755.

If your child is not feeling well-
Please check your child's temperature if they are not feeling well. The CDC and the New York State Department of Health recommend that students and staff remain out of school for at least 24 hours after having a fever. Also note that students should be fever-free for 24hrs WITHOUT the use of fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol and Motrin. The teachers and staff here at NMS are working together to remind the students to wash their hands and to cover coughs and sneezes. Please report any diagnosed illnesses to me. Thank you for your cooperation in our attempt to keep our school a healthy, learning environment.

If you have any questions please call me at 262-6755.
