Letter from the clinic

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to LEE/ISA/NESA/STEM!!!  As the school nurses, the health and well being of our students is our highest priority.  Your assistance with the procedures listed below is very important in helping us keep your student and our campus healthy and safe.  Please read the following and feel free to call us or stop by the clinic at any time if you have questions.

1) PLEASE COMPLETE AND RETURN THE BLUE EMERGENCY CARD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
All students are required to have a current emergency card on file in the clinic. This information is a vital part of your student’s records. If an injury occurs at school, first aid will be given.  If additional medical care or evaluation is necessary, we will attempt to contact a parent.  If we are unable to reach a parent, we will contact one of the alternate adults listed.  It is very important to fill this card out completely. Please notify the clinic of any changes made throughout the year. Students will only be released to people listed on the emergency card . So please list all adults who might be available during the year. Please return these as soon as possible!!!!
