If there are any unusual findings or cause for concern, the school nurse will contact the parent/guardian.  In the event additional evaluation is needed, a referral form will be sent home to the parent/guardian to take to their private healthcare provider.  

As always, if you have a concern with your child, please feel free to contact the school nurse.  Remember:  Children need to learn to be healthy and need to be healthy to learn.
