Welcome to my School Nurse Page!
This is my 34th year of my nursing career and my 16th year of working as a school nurse with St. Charles Parish Public Schools. I am the School Nurse at R.J. Vial Elementary and Allemands Elementary. I have attached various medical forms that may be necessary to complete or update during the school year.
IMMUNIZATIONS: All students are required to receive state-mandated immunizations when they turn 4 years old and 11 years old. If your child has recently turned 4 years old or 11 years old and has not yet received these immunizations, please make an appointment with your child's doctor ASAP. If your child attends R.J. Vial Elementary and is registered for the Access Health Wellness Center, they can get them there during the school day. Please send the up to-date immunization record to the school once the immunizations are received.
MEDICATIONS: If your child will require medication during the school day, a medication Order Form will need to be completed by you and your child's doctor. The order form can be obtained from the school office. There is also a link below to this form. A new form will need to be completed by your child's doctor each year on or after July 1st. This completed form along with the medication properly labeled by the pharmacy must be checked in by a parent/guardian with the School Nurse. Students are NOT allowed to carry any medication with them to school. Please contact me to arrange a time to check-in the medication.
DIETS/ALLERGIES: If your child has a food allergy/intolerance or needs an otherwise modified diet, please have their doctor complete a Diet Prescription Form. A new form will need to be completed and submiyyrf each school year (on or after July 1st). You can obtain a copy of this form from the school office.
