Notes from the School Nurse


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Here are some reminders to help make this school year off to a great start.

  • All students are required to have an updated immunization record or immunization waiver on file with the school health office. If you need an immunization waiver form, please contact the school health office

  • Medication Forms and Emergency Action Plans need to be completed each school year and handed into the health office during an open house or the first week of school. Please click the following link if you are in need of a form: OASD Health Services

  • A reminder that all medications must be brought in their original containers to the health office by a parent/guardian and a medication form must be completed by a parent/guardian and signed by a physician.

If your child is going to be absent or late for school for any reason, please contact the office at 920-424-0172.  If we are unable to speak to us directly, you may leave a message on the voice mail system to report the absence.  Please be specific when calling your child in. If it is an illness we do need to know all the symptoms the child is having as well as the best number to reach you at if we have any further questions. Absences are considered "unexcused" if we do not hear from a parent/guardian by 9 am.  Students who are absent from school more than 10 minutes of any part of the day without a proper excuse shall be recorded as unexcused.  A student who is absent less than 10 minutes of a day shall be recorded as tardy.  The time a student enters or leaves the building will be documented, and the system will calculate the absence accordingly and uniformly across the district.  Please keep this in mind as you schedule appointments for your children.  It is always best to schedule appointments during non-school hours.  Students are expected to be in class from 7:45 to 2:45 daily.


Wisconsin Weather

With Wisconsin weather varying so much from day to day please make sure your child(ren) is dressed appropriately for school. Our district's guidelines are as follows:

  • Boots, Snowpants and winter jackets are required to play on the snow.
  • Also remember hats, gloves and scarves for extra warmth.
  • Recesses will be outdoors unless the temperature is below 10 degrees or the wind chill is below zero.
