Southside School Nurse Important Information

Booklet of information regarding COVID-19 Re-entry Information

Letter from School Nurse

Dear Parents or Guardians:

First, I want to say welcome back to school! I am Courtny Lewis, the school nurse for your child’s school. 2020 has been a crazy year so far and a lot of things have changed. I wanted to address some of the procedures that we will be doing for this school year before our year starts.

Each day when your student comes to school, he/she will be asked screening questions for any symptoms related to Covid-19 (these include runny nose, sore throat, stomach ache, chills, body aches, headache, loss of smell or taste).  A temperature will be taken every day upon arrival, too. If your child has a fever (temperature above 100.4) or answers “yes” to any one symptom the teacher will send the student to our isolation room to be assessed by an LPN or myself. 

After assessment by the nurse, you will receive a phone call to come and pick up your child. Our procedure for the county is that a student with any one symptom will go home. The student must be in isolation for 14 days and do schoolwork remotely from home. You may take your child to his/her pediatrician to be assessed. If the pediatrician states the student is cleared and can return to school earlier than 14 days, then the school will need that in writing for him/her to return.

I know this may cause some inconveniences in plans; however, we must be extra cautious during this pandemic as we return to school. We have spoken with our county health department and our newly hired Chief Medical Officer, and this is the recommendation from both groups. 

If you or your child has tested positive for Covid-19, we ask that you call the school to inform us. This information will be kept private and only shared when necessary to the Health Department, so we can contact trace with other students in your child’s core grouping.

If your child is not feeling well, please don’t send him/her to school. We will be lenient on absences during this time. I also encourage you to get the flu vaccine for you and your child as soon as they are available. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us, we are here to help. We want to be back in school with your children. Let’s help the end of 2020 be better than our beginning! Thank you!

Courtny Lewis, MSN, RN, CPN
