N.E.I.S.D. Health Services Mission Statement
Health Services, through excellence, professionalism, and collaboration, leads the North East community in promoting and supporting life-long health habits to assist all students to achieve their maximum learning potential and to become well-rounded, productive, and responsible members of society.
Since learning and good health are our goals at school, here are some tips about keeping your child healthy:
If you child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, they need to stay home until the fever is gone for 24 hours without taking any fever reducing medicines.
Each child needs fuel to learn. Help your child get a good breakfast and a great start every day.
Most elementary aged children need between 9 and 10 hours of sleep a night. Parents can help them by establishing a routine bedtime, even on the weekends or holidays.
Cleaning hands is the simplest and most effective way to prevent the spread of germs. Encourage your child to practice good hand washing at appropriate times every day.
If your child appears ill but does not have a fever, evaluate them carefully about deciding to send them to school. They may spread germs to their friends and may not learn well in class.

Welcome to Wetmore Elementary!.
At school we stress safety for everyone. Please know that we have a medication policy in place that helps us keep all children safe. An adult must bring all medications to the school clinic. The clinic staff needs to count and initial a form for the medication, and the adult bringing the medicine will initial the form as well. Children are never allowed to handle their medicines on school property including the bus.
For long term medications, we require a physician’s order each school year. Your doctor can complete a form provided by the school district or write orders on their letterhead. Parents need to sign the order, too.
If your child needs medication such as an antibiotic for a short amount of time, we only require a parent’s note giving us permission to administer the medicine, the time the medicine needs to be given, and signature. Short term over the counter medicines can be administered for a 10 day period. Please leave only a 10 day supply of medicine in the clinic. If the medicine is needed past 10 days, we will need a physician’s order.
Please be sure any medicines you bring are in the original container and that the container is properly labeled with your child’s name. Only an adult can pick up leftover medicines from the clinic.
Blue emergency cards are like a link between parents and school. If you have not already completed a blue emergency card for each child for this school year, please do so as soon as the packet comes home the first day of school. Ask your child to return the card to school the next day so we can communicate with you if necessary.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school clinic at
407-8800 extension 78833 or 78803 to speak to Natalie Nichols, R.N. or Nancy Echols, clinic assistant.
