    ATTENTION PARENTS: IS YOUR CHILD CARRYING 20-30% OF THEIR BODY WEIGHT IN THEIR BACKPACK? According to Change.org (2017), it is medically proven that children carrying more than 10% of their body weight is damaging to their spines. "Just because you can’t see the internal damage, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening" (Sams, 2017).

    BECOME AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF ENSURING THAT YOUR CHILD IS CARRYING NO MORE THAN 10% OF THEIR WEIGHT IN THEIR BACKPACK. -VISIT www.bacsupport.com FOR MORE INFORMATION.
    Heavy Backpack Awareness - BacSupport.com
    www.bacsupport.com
    BacSupport.com has a mission to spread awareness about the damage done by backpacks that are far too heavy for our children.

    IMPORTANT 2017-2018 HEALTH ASSESSMENT DOCUMENTATION CHANGE:

    ANY STUDENT WITH  NOTED HEALTH CONDITIONS ON THE HEALTH PORTION OF INFOSNAP/ HEALTH ASSESSMENT FORMS WILL REQUIRE VERIFICATION/ DOCUMENTATION FROM THEIR PHYSICIAN, PRIOR TO THE DEVELOPMENT OR CONTINUATION OF A HEALTH CARE-PLAN.  PLEASE PROVIDE THE LATTER DOCUMENTATION TO YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL NURSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, PREFERABLY PRIOR TO STUDENTS' FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

     

    • A Physician's note will be required in order to confirm students' medical diagnosis.
    • This note will NOT be required on an annual basis; however, any medical updates on a student's condition should be provided to the school nurse annually. 
    • Any student whom we do not receive a medical diagnosis confirmation on from the Physician, will be placed in a 'disabled mode' in INOW. 
    • All students prescribed daily and/ or 'as needed' medication, are already required to submit updated Physician orders each school year; therefore, these students will NOT requireadditional medical documentation.
