ESMS and PS138 each have an assigned nurse; they work together to watch over all of the kids for the duration of the school day. Either may answer the phone, so when you call, please be sure to say which school your child attends.
Medical conditions such as seizures, diabetes, asthma and other chronic diseases requiring medication need to be reported to the nursing office. The corresponding Medical forms (MAF) in our files must be for the current school year; the links are below. A parent/guardian should submit the MAF and labeled medicine to school at the same time. When you come by, the nurse will be called to the lobby to meet you. If you are unsure about the MAF or other medical paperwork the school might need, please call the medical room in advance to discuss. Medications are to be picked up by the parent/guardian on/by the last day of school.
Please email immunization records any time there is an update: firstname.lastname@example.org
