Rosemary Schuster, BSN, RN
Heartsaver CPR and First Aid Instructor
The Health Clinic at St. Andrew's responds to the first aid, emergency first aid needs and health needs of your student during the school day. In addition, when the need arises, the School Nurse or designee, may administer prescription and over-the-counter medication with the written permission of a parent/guardian/physician. The School Nurse coordinates health screenings for the preschool and school age child including; vision, hearing, scoliosis and the Eye, Ear and Dental (EED) screening for the PreK-4 child. The Health Clinic receives and maintains the "Student Information and Permission Form" (Form A) and the "Student Health Information Form" (Form B). In addition the clinic is responsible for ensuring that the school has on file a current immunization record on every student (Form 3231). The clinic provides Heartsaver CPR and First Aid classes to the faculty and staff requiring/desiring such certification.
~ Form 3231 is an Immunization record – state law requires that every child attending school in Georgia has a current certificate on file completed by a physician or local health department. If after 30 days no current record is on file with the school the student cannot attend school until one is completed. Immunization records from out of state must be transferred to Georgia Form 3231 within 30 days of school attendance. This again can be done by a local physician or health department.
Kindergarten and 6th grade are required to have two MMR vaccinations and two Varicella (chicken pox) vaccinations unless exempted by local pediatrician or health department.
~ Student Information and Permission Form (Form A) and Student Health Information (Form B) - These forms provide the Administration and School Health Professional or Nurse with emergency contact numbers and other pertinent medical information allowing us to provide the best care possible care for your child. If your child has Asthma or allergies and has been prescribed an Epi-Pen or inhaler please ensure the school has one available for emergency use. These forms can be found on the school's web site.
~ Authorization to Dispense Medication (Form C) – please complete this form found on the school's web site every time your child has to be given medicine at school. Please send the medication in the original prescription container.
Please notify me with any contact changes or health changes. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you and wishing everyone a healthy and successful school year!
