Northport Middle School
Mrs. Fiorito, School Nurse, 262-6755
ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE SCHOOL NURSE.
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.
Late winter sports sign up will begin Tuesday, January 16. This
includes girls basketball, boys volleyball and wrestling. If your child
has already signed up for a sport this year, they must still sign up
and be cleared for late winter sports. An updated physical within the
school year and a pre-participation form must be completed and signed by
a parent. Sign up will be in the nurse's office during student's lunch
period January 16 through January 19.
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.
