School Nurse and Health Information

Welcome back to the new school year for 2019-2020. All students that require any medication in school, including over the counter, must have a signed physician form. No over the medications will be given per New Mexico state law. If your child will need over the counter medication, the physician form must be signed and returned along with the medication in its original bottle. 

A school based health center is now open at the high school and is available to all students as long as a permission slip has been signed. All forms have gone or will be going home with the student. Services available include a nurse practitioner and counselor that are from Sunrise Medical. This service is a benefit to all and will help keep students healthier and no long waits to see a physician or nurse practitioner. I urge you to please take advantage of this benefit to our district.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Lets have a great school year!

Thank you,
