Nurse's Corner


    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I hope everyone had a great summer.  I will now be on Turrentine’s Campus Monday-Friday from 7:45am-3:45pm.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to me at any time by phone or email!  There are a few start of the school year housekeeping issues that you need to be aware of:


    • Will your child be taking medication at school? If so, an adult must bring the medication to the school nurse office along with a completed medication authorization form completed by the physician.  ALL medications, including over the counter, must have a completed physician’s form in order for your child to take medication at school.  You can pick up the medication authorization form from the nurse’s office at any time or you can print from the link below:


    Medical Authorization Form


    • NC Immunization Law requires rising 7th graders to have a Tdap and Meningococcal vaccine for 7th grade entry.  Please go ahead and schedule an immunization appointment for your child if you have not done so already. This must be received by the 30thday of the 2018-19 school year or your child will be suspended from school.  You may call your pediatrician or the Alamance County Health Department for a vaccine appointment. The Alamance County Health Department is located at 319 N Graham-Hopedale Rd., Burlington, NC and can be contacted at 336-227-0101.  Do NOT wait until the last minute as appointments fill up quickly in the month of August.  If your child has received the vaccines, please send in a copy of the vaccine record.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school nurse!


    I look forward to working with you and your children this year!
