A Note from the Nurse – Planning for next school year:

Medications for 2020-21

New Medication Forms must be completed by the parent/guardian and health care provider for the 2020-21 school year.  Medication authorization forms expire at the end of each school year. Make sure you make your request to the health care provider before August. Clinics get very busy and may not be able to complete your request if submitted after mid- August. New medication forms must have a start date on or after August 1st, 2020, or say 2020-21 school year to be valid for next school year.

Medication Authorization Forms can be found on the NSD website www.nsd.org

Students with Life Threatening Conditions

Per state law, medication/treatment forms signed by health care provider and parent/guardian, all supplies, and a health care plan must be in place before the first day of school attendance. You must contact the nurse to prepare or update the health care plan the week before school starts to prepare for your student’s safe attendance. A telephone or in-person appointment may be scheduled by contacting the nurse by email or phone during the last week of August.

School Nurse Substitutes are Needed

Are you a Registered Nurse who might be interested in exploring the rewards of school-based nursing, supplementing work hours or simply maintaining nursing licensure credentials? We would love to discuss available opportunities as a substitute school nurse with the Northshore School District -- this is a great way to transition into community nursing with K-12 school age children.
