    NURSE’S NOTES

    Allergy Season
    Spring allergy season is upon us and many of your children will be affected by this.  Just as a reminder, we do NOT carry allergy medication in the nurse’s office.  Please be proactive and medicate your child for their allergies at home. If a child forgets to take their medication at home, a parent may bring it to school and give it to them.  
     
    Immunization Records
    If your child receives any vaccines during doctor appointments, please send us a copy so we can update their immunization records.  Current juniors will be receiving their second dose of the Meningitis A vaccine this year (it is required by State Law), so please send those records to us.  Colleges require this vaccine also, so by getting it done now, you don’t have to worry about it anymore!  We can be reached at 636-733-4107 or 636-733-4108 for any questions.
     
    Monitoring Health at Home
    Please continue to keep your child home if they are sick.  We ask that they be feeling better and symptoms resolving for 24 hours before they come back to school.  If they have a fever, please keep them home until fever free, without the aid of medication, for 24 hours.
     
    Health Conditions
    Please contact the nurse’s office to update or inform us of any new medical conditions your child may have, or if their previous medical condition has resolved.  If your child is self-carrying any  medications, such as tylenol, ibuprofen, an epi-pen or inhaler, please let us know and fill out the appropriate form.

    NURSE’S NOTES

    Allergy Season
    Spring allergy season is upon us and many of your children will be affected by this.  Just as a reminder, we do NOT carry allergy medication in the nurse’s office.  Please be proactive and medicate your child for their allergies at home. If a child forgets to take their medication at home, a parent may bring it to school and give it to them.  
     
    Monitoring Health at Home
    If a single low-risk symptom resolves in 24-48 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, the person may return to school or work. If they have multiple symptoms, they need a doctor's note or professional negative COVID-19 test to return, or they need to remain home for five days.  They may also contact the St. Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) for guidance.  Please take a moment to read Rockwood's Monitoring for Symptoms Guidelines here.  Rockwood's Safe Together initiative can be found here.  
     
    Health Conditions
    Please contact the nurse’s office to update or inform us of any new medical conditions your child may have, or if their previous medical condition has resolved.  If your child is self-carrying any rescue medications, such as an epi-pen or inhaler, please let us know and fill out the appropriate form.  
     
    Immunization Records
    If your child receives any vaccines during doctor appointments, please send us a copy so we can update their immunization records.  We are still missing meningitis A vaccines for some current seniors, so please send us their record if they have received their second dose.  Current juniors will be receiving their second doses this year, so please send those to us as well! We can be reached at 636-733-4107 or 636-733-4108 for any questions.

    Class of 2024 Students and Families,

    If you don’t feel well, please stay home.

    Allergy Season:  Our nursing staff have seen an increase in students coming in to request allergy medication.  Our nurses are not able to distribute allergy medication, so they ask that students take their medication at home prior to coming to school.  Thank you!

    Attention students interested in applying for NHS in the Fall of 2022: There will be an informational meeting on Zoom on Thursday evening, April 21st at 6:45pm.   At the meeting the current NHS Exec board will detail the application requirements and answer any questions.   Here is the Zoom invite:  https://rsdmo-org.zoom.us/j/91971517369

    Proposition P: Rockwood’s Proposition P is a no-tax-increase initiative on the April 5, 2022 ballot. If passed, Prop P will authorize the district to establish a dedicated annual funding source for technology and safety upgrades as well as cycle maintenance projects without raising the district’s total tax rate. This funding source would eliminate the need to borrow funds and pay interest on scheduled technology and safety upgrades and annual maintenance items, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars. For more information about Proposition P, visit the district website at www.rsdmo.org/PropP

    A “Sweet” Hello Candy Donation Requested:  Mrs. Mehegan and I enjoy it when our Class of 2024 students stop in for a piece of candy or a mint during passing periods.  Students often will take a quick moment to share about their days, school involvement, classes, etc.  Please help us keep our candy and mint bowl filled by donating individual wrapped candy.  Candy donations can be delivered to the Sophomore Office (Room 261), dropped off to the Welcome Center (with a note to deliver to Mrs. Mehegan), or conveniently ordered through this Amazon Class of 2024 Wishlist.  The most favorite seems to be ‘Dum Dums’.
