From the Desk of Nurse Allen

Welcome Back!!!

It’s always my pleasure to take care of your child/children.  A healthy mind and a healthy body breed academic excellence. I am here to assist your child in staying healthy. As the school nurse, I do not diagnose. I assess your child’s health and make recommendations based upon each individual. My door is always open to you to discuss any concerns that you may have.

It’s imperative that you maintain your child’s immunizations required by the state of Texas. If your child’s immunizations are incomplete, your child will not be able to remain in school until immunizations are current. For a complete list of required immunizations, please see your child’s doctor. See related story on measles outbreak.

A request form for administering medication must be signed and completed by the parent and returned to my office before medication can be given to your child. As the school nurse, I do not administer over-the-counter medications.  All medications must be prescribed by a physician and must be brought to school by an adult in its original labeled container. If your child has allergies, please have them documented in writing.

Food Allergies
If your child is allergic to certain foods, a doctor’s note informing the school is required. 

Thank you very much for making Varnett your school of choice.
