Message from the nurse—Mrs. Lori Mac Manus, RN, BSN, CSN
Welcome to spring—birds singing, flowers blooming and children sneezing and dealing with itchy eyes! Please remember to provide your children with allergy medicine if needed before coming to school. If you have any medication that may alleviate the itching eyes, and running noses that are so frequent this time of year, please obtain a doctor’s order and bring in a supply of the medication so that it can be administered safely to your child.
If you have any questions, please contact me at: 732-968-0885 Ext. 15
