Brandi Hemesath, School Nurse - District
Brandi Hemesath, NURSE
I want to introduce myself to you: I am the new school nurse at South Winneshiek Community School District.
To best serve the needs of your child, would you kindly notify me if your child has any health concerns I should be aware of? If your child is taking prescription medication, please complete the Prescription Medication Release Form and the Permission for Medication during School Hours form found on the school web site http://www.southwinn.com
on the right side of the home page under the Forms tab.
Additionally, students occasionally come to my office with head aches, cold symptoms, etc. The school keeps a VERY limited supply of over the counter meds on hand for students. If you would like your child to have an over the counter medication, please complete, sign and return the Parental Order Form for Over the Counter Medications also found under the Forms tab on the home page of the school's web site: http://www.southwinn.com
If your child requires an over the counter medication on a more regular basis (for example, anth-histamines), I would ask that you supply that medication since we do keep a very limited supply.
If you are unable to download and print the forms, simply contact me and I will mail them out to you.
Please make certain your child's immunizations are up to date--there are specific requirements for kindergarteners and 7th graders. If you have not updated these, please get them completed within the next few weeks. If you have questions, please contact your child's medical provider.
I am in the elementary and middle schools from 7:45 a.m. until 12:00 p.m and then at the high school from 12:30 - 2:15 p.m. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or want to provide an update.
