Hickory Hawk’s Nurse
Mary Brand, RN
Hello Hickory Creek Families! I am Nurse Mary. This is my fourth year as HCES’ school nurse. It is very important to me that all of our students are healthy and feeling their best while at school. Please feel free to contact me with any health concerns or questions at 547-7462 or [email protected]stjohns.k12.fl.us
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to participate in your child’s health care needs.
If your student requires any medication for Asthma or Allergies (to be kept at school), a Medical Management Plan must be completed by your physician. ***Remember all forms and medications should be brought in by a parent or guardian, NOT THE STUDENT.
If your student requires any medication other than asthma or allergy (i.e. Motrin, Tylenol) you will need to have your physician fill out a Medication Administration Form. *** A parent or guardian will need to bring the form along with the medication to the clinic.
Also, please remember we are entering cold/flu season. Students should be kept home if they have a fever of 100 or greater. They should remain at home until they are FEVER FREE for 24 hours WITHOUT MEDICATION. Please monitor your child for symptoms of illness. If noticed, keeping them home is the key to the prevention of spreading germs.
Head Lice: Parents are highly encouraged to check their children as often as possible for head lice at home. If lice are found, please treat and contact the nurse for return to school instructions.
