School Nurse News

Attention parents! We will be doing our Fall dental screening & fluoride varnish event this Thursday, October 10th. Forms were sent home a couple weeks ago and several have not been returned. Please send in your BLUE consent form for that event if you haven't already. If you have misplaced your form please let Nurse Natasha know that you would like your child to participate by calling 417-637-5921, ext. 212. 

Additionally, it's that time of year that we need extra protection against the nasty Influenza virus. We are already starting to see it, and it's looking like it's going to be pretty bad this season. Cox CARE Mobile will be on site to provide FLU vaccines to our students on November 5th. They will be free for any student who is uninsured or has Medicaid coverage, and will be billed to insurance for those who have Private Insurance. Notes will be sent home today to sign your child up for their vaccine. Please return notes by Friday, October 11th, so that we can reserve the proper amount. If you would like to get their vaccine sooner, they have them available at our local pharmacy, health department, or their PCP. 

Stay well!

Nurse Natasha
