Forms and Health Resources
From the Health Office . . .
I have been the Registered Nurse at Mountain Pointe High School since 2008. My background includes more than 20 years of nursing experience in a variety of areas including: school nursing, medical-surgical, and surgery. Additionally, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
I have two children who are members of the Pride. Prior to this position, I was active as a parent volunteer at MP and have always enjoyed the school environment.
One question that I get asked on a daily basis is about taking medicine at school. Per district policy, students are NOT permitted to carry medicine of any kind at school. There are 3 exceptions and they are as follows:
If your student can take medicine at home, please have them do so. If absolutely necessary to take medicine at school, the parent MUST bring the required/desired medicine to the nurse in its original, sealed container and complete a medication form. Students may NOT carry the medicine to the nurse. This applies to over-the-counter medicine as well as prescription medicine.
- ASTHMA - If the doctor has said that they need to carry their inhaler, please complete the asthma care plan and inhaler form for the nurse.
- DIABETES – These students may carry their meters, insulin and supplies. Please check with nurse and/or print forms from website and submit to nurse.
- ANAPHYLACTIC ALLERGY – Please complete appropriate paperwork for the nurse for student to carry an Epipen.
Also, if you should receive a letter in the mail from me regarding immunizations, PLEASE take the time to read it and follow through with whatever is needed. Every student HAS to be current with required immunizations or they may not attend school. We take this issue very seriously.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.
