Welcome to our new website!

Welcome to the new MSAD #52 nursing website.  We hope that you explore our page and find some of the links informative and helpful in navigating your child’s health, well-being, and needs throughout the school year. Our goal is to help keep you up to date with current health and wellness happenings within our district.  There is a strong connection between a child’s physical, mental, and emotional health to their success in education. We want to help your child strive towards academic excellence through optimal health and look forward to working with you and your family.


So here it goes...a friendly reminder from the nurses.  We are having an outbreak of a variety of late winter viral illnesses in our schools. In order to decrease the spread of infection, and control outbreaks, I would like to remind everyone of the 24 hour rules.


THE 24 HOUR RULES


  • A child MUST be free of fever for 24 hours (without medication to reduce the fever) before returning to school.

  • Children with Strep infections MUST be on antibiotics for 24 hours before returning to school.

  • Children MUST be free of nausea and/or vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school.


Our goal is to significantly reduce exposure to illness.  Sick children do not perform to their potential in academics or even in after school activities.


We thank you and please call us with any questions.
