My name is Amanda Boteler and I am the new campus nurse for RAE. Thank You for my warm welcome from the RAE staff and PTA. I have had the pleasure of meeting with and speaking to many of my students' families. If your child has a medical condition you would like me to be aware of, please come by the Clinic or give me a call (281.237.7125).
Enrollment cards have a specific place for phone numbers where parents and emergency contacts may be reached. Please ensure these vital numbers are accurate and up to date, should I need to contact you.
Medicine - Children may not carry medicine with them while on school grounds; not even cough drops. If your child requires medicine during school hours, the parents may bring the medicine to the clinic in its original container along with a note completed by the parent or physician.
To ensure the health and safety of all students, any students who exhibit vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever >100.0 F, must be excluded from school. Students may return to school as follows:
Free of fever (<100.0F) for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
Food and liquids have been tolerated for at least 24 hours without vomiting and/or diarrhea, and without the use of medication to relieve symptoms.
Students diagnosed with a contagious illness that is being treated with prescription medication, must complete a minimum of 24 hours of the prescribed medication dosage prior to returning to school.
Please contact me if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious condition such as strep throat, chickenpox, pink eye, impetigo, ringworm, flu, or has vomiting and/or diarrhea.
In response to the increase in the number of children diagnosed with food allergies, students may not share food at school.
Please pack an extra set of clothing, including underwear and socks, in a plastic bag for your child in their backpack. It is comforting to have your own clothes in case of an accident.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me. Hoping for a Safe, Happy and HEALTHY year for everyone.
Amanda Boteler, RN BSN
