- Parents - It is vitally important that you inform me

during the school day, or which may affect their learning.
Please contact me asap should this be the case.
-School board policy requires that students not carry
any medicines with them with the exception of emergency inhalers
and epi-pens. Please inform me if your student has need of
these medicines, or if you need to leave other medicines in my
office for your student to use during the school
-In addition, please inform me immediately if your
student has an illness that is contagious such as chicken pox,
H1N1, MRSA, etc. We need to keep the rest of the school
population safe and informed as appropriate.
-Please be aware that the state of Indiana has new
immunization requirements as of the 2010-2011 school
year. Students who are not in compliance will be
excluded from school beginning 20 days from the start of the school
- The Lake Ridge School Based Health Clinic at
Calumet High School is available to all Lake Ridge

health needs. A referral from one of the school nurses is
required before being seen during school hours. The clinic
also has hours after school for the community as a whole. Call
880-1190 for more information.
- I hope you and your student have a safe, healthy, and
profitable school year. Let me know if I can be of assistance
in any way!
Updating Phone Numbers!!!
|During an emergency, it is extremely important that the nurse
be able to reach the parents of a sick or injured student.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO UPDATE ANY CHANGE IN HOME OR WORK PHONE
The emergency number should be a friend or relative WHO
WOULD BE AVAILABLE TO TRANSPORT THE STUDENT HOME if the
parents are not available.
Parents who are going out of town should send a note or call the
school with information regarding who will be responsible for the
student during the parent's absence.
