Aya of the Week
Woe unto every slandering traducer, (1) Who hath gathered wealth (of this world) and arranged it. (2) He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal. (3) Nay, but verily he will be flung to the Consuming One. (4) Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Consuming One is! (5) (It is) the fire of Allah, kindled, (6) Which leapeth up over the hearts (of men). (7) Lo! it is closed in on them (8) In outstretched columns. (9)
If a student contact lice, he or she will not be allowed to return to school until after he or she is treated. A child must bring to the school office the empty lice treatment package, to show that treatment was done. Encourage your child/ren not to share combs, brushes, hats, scarves etc.
The Milwaukee City Health Department recommends that each student have a “Child’s Health History” form on file. Parent/guardians are given these forms at the time of registration and they must be promptly returned.
Due to budgetary cutbacks, the City of Milwaukee Health Department has reduced the number of school nurse visits. The school nurse has limited contact with the schools; therefore one should not assume that the services of a nurse would be provided on a weekly basis. Medical irregularities should be presented to your family physician.
Schools will also provide preventive drug and alcohol programs. Support and referral procedures shall be available for students.
If a student becomes sick in school or suffers an injury, parents/guardians will be contacted. It is necessary to have all available emergency information on file in case no one can be contacted at home.
No student may leave the school building because of sickness without first reporting to the school office.
School personnel may not administer medicine. If a child must take medication, they must be able to administer the dose themselves. All medications will be kept in the school office. It is essential that a note from the physician and parent/guardian accompany all medication. If a doctor’s statement and parent/guardian permission form do not accompany the medication, the student will not receive it. All medication that is given, will be logged every time medicine is administered.
