My name is Rachelle Hodson and I am the School Nurse at Hayes School. If you should have any questions or concerns regarding the health of your child, please feel free to contact me at 563 723-6600. Below you will find some helpful information regarding the Health Office:
Please notify the Health Office:
If your child has a change in health status, a communicable disease, needs to take medication at school, or has developed a chronic illness that is diagnosed.
If your child will be absent, please give two physical symptoms or physician’s diagnosis.
Fever: If your child’s temperature is 100 or above, you will be called and the child will need to go home. Children are to stay home until they have not had a fever for 24 hours before returning to school.
Vomiting and/or diarrhea: You will be called and asked to pick up your child.
Medications: All prescriptions and nonprescription medications must have a DCSD Medication Administration form. This form may be obtained from the Health Office or on line.
Health screenings: Hearing screens are done by the AEA for grades K, 1st, 2nd, & 5th grades. Vision screenings are done for grades K, 3rd, and 5th grades. A note will be sent home with your student if they are referred for further testing.
Head Screens: Parents/guardians are responsible for checking their child’s hair weekly. If lice/nits are found, please treat and notify the nurse.
I hope everyone has a wonderful school year and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or I can be of any assistance to you.
