Nurse's Office

Welcome to Middletown High School Nurse's Office. Please feel free to contact us with any health related issues that your child/student may have during the school year. The nurse is looking forward to a HEALTHY and happy school year!

Allergies

If your child has food allergies of any kind, please notify the school nurse so she can inform the teacher and cafeteria manager. School district policy requests a doctor's note on each student with food allergies.

Emergency Care

If your child becomes injured or ill, the school will notify you. It is essential that the school has the following updated information.
 
1. How we can reach you (home phone, work phone, phone number of relative or neighbor)
2. Family Doctor's information (Name, address, telephone)
3. Allergies or other specific information about your child.
 
Your child will bring home an Emergency Medical Form at the beginning of the school year. It is very important that this is on file and up-to-date. Please fill this out and return it to school as soon as possible.

Flu Season

Traditionally referred to as "the flu," seasonal influenza is a contagious respiratory disease caused by the influenza virus. Flu is spread person-to-person, often by droplets that are airborne from someone sneezing or coughing. The flu virus can exist in the environment for days -- particularly in the cold and in low humidity.
 
Let’s all contribute to FIGHT and help reduce the spread of seasonal influenza!
 
• Take the time to get a yearly flu vaccine {Students, parents, and staff}.
• Take everyday preventive actions, including covering coughs and sneezes, washing
hands, and keeping your hands away from their nose, mouth, and eyes.
• Stay home when sick.
• Make a routine of surface cleaning.

Immunizations

Students are required to be immunized in accordance with the Ohio law (Ohio Revised Code 3313.67/3313.671).
