Nurse's Corner


Hello Parents and Students!! Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! My name is Tracey Umberger and I am the school Nurse here at Turrentine.


Here are a few reminders for the upcoming year.

All 6th graders are required by North Carolina law to get the Tdap vaccination. This vaccination is a booster that helps protect them from Pertussis or “Whooping Cough”. You will have 30 calendar days starting on August 25, 2014 to get your child immunized or they will be suspended from school until it is received. Also, I must have written proof that your child has had the immunization. We cannot accept future appointments for this vaccine to avoid suspension. Get your appointment now with your physician or health department.

If your child needs to take medication at school…All medication whether prescription or over the counter has to have a medication authorization form filled out by your child’s physician and signed by you. Any medication brought to school by a student or parent that does not have the proper paper work with it will be confiscated and will not be given to the student until we have a doctor’s order for it. You can get a Medication Authorization Form from the front office or from me.

If you have questions about the ABSS Medication Policy, I have copies in my office for you. There are no exceptions to this policy. Students who require asthma inhalers or Epi-Pens may self-carry. All other medications will be locked in the front office and administered by trained front office staff.
