Moon Valley Health Office
Greetings from the Nurse’s Office
My name is Melissa Fisher and I am the nurse at Moon Valley. I am looking forward to a great year ahead. In order to provide the best care possible for your child I have listed some guidelines to help accomplish that goal.
(1) An Emergency /Health Information card needs to be filled out each new school year for every student. Medications given out from the nurse’s office on an as-needed basis such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, TUMS and cough drops can only be administered to students if these medications are circled “yes” on the front of the yearly health card.
(2) Federal law requires that all students are current with their immunizations to attend school or have a signed exemption form on file due to personal or medical reasons. I will send out notifications to students that are not current with their immunizations.
(3) For students with a chronic medical condition such as diabetes, asthma, epilepsy/seizure disorder, severe allergies requiring an epi-pen, or any other chronic medical condition, a health care action plan from the student’s physician must be on file.
(4) Students are not allowed to carry any medications (prescription or over the counter) while at school. Insulin, inhalers, and epipens are the exception but a self-carry/self-administer form must be on file in the nurse’s office.
Please feel free to contact me between 7:30 am to 3:30 pm if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for allowing me to provide care to your child.
Melissa Fisher, RN, BSN
