LOGOS International School
We are excited to announce that Logos International School has a school nurse, Mrs. Trish Pitaniello, on staff this year. This means that we will be providing additional health care services to our students this school year. We hope to be a resource for parents and children and actively support your child’s health needs.
This year, the school nurse will test the vision of all students without vision correction, and measure their height and weight. Parents will be notified if these exams suggest additional evaluation.
If an accident or illness occurs at school, first aid will be administered and parents notified. It is very important that parents complete and return the attached EMERGENCY HEALTH INFORMATION form. This information should be updated as needed. Should parents be away, please let the office know who to contact in case of an emergency. In extreme situations an ambulance will be called.
In order to provide a healthy environment for your child, we have made some guidelines for parents to use when deciding if a child can be sent to school.
The following symptoms are typical of diseases that can spread:
We kindly ask that children with these symptoms wait to return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours, have been on antibiotics for 24 hours if required or have stopped vomiting or having diarrhea for 24 hours. Your compliance with this is especially important due to the recent spread in Cambodia of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease.
Research has shown that pediculosis (lice) is not usually spread through contact at school, but at sleep-overs. If you think your child may have lice, please have him/her see the school nurse and she can recommend a treatment, if necessary.
If your child requires routine medications during the school day, please contact our nurse.
The following medications may be on hand at the school and can be administered with parental approval:
Tylenol for aches and pains
Benadryl for allergic reactions
Tums when needed for stomach pain
Special Needs: Temporary or permanent physical needs that may affect a child’s school program and/or well being should be communicated to the office or school nurse. Physical education and recess restrictions must be communicated in writing. The reason and time period should be included.
Please contact our nurse, Trish Pitaniello, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns, need for assistance or questions.
