Welcome to the Dos Rios health office!
It's HOT outside. To stay cool, drink lots of water. Send your student to school with a water bottle. Dress in lightweight, loose-fitting clothes. Limit your physical activity when it's hot outside. HERE is more information about extreme heat.
District 6 Health Services encourages every child to be immunized in consultation with their health care provider. Vaccinations prevent many serious diseases and help prevent the transmission of those contagions in our schools, which improves attendance and learning for all students. Colorado law requires students who attend a public, private, or parochial kindergarten-12th grade school to be vaccinated against many of the diseases vaccines can prevent unless a certificate of exemption is filed. For more information, visit SCHOOL-REQUIRED VACCINES. Please provide vaccination records for your student to the health office.
If your student is ill and you aren't sure if you should send them to school, HERE is information about when to keep your student home for illness.
Our health clerk is Lori Montgomery, and our school nurse consultant is Liz Eberhard, RN. The health office is open 7:30 am-4:00 pm Monday through Friday. During this time, Lori is in the health office. Liz is in the building once a week (usually on Monday).
The health office serves multiple functions. We see students and staff for illness or injury during the school day, administer prescribed medications, and maintain medical and immunization records. Additionally, we can serve as an interface between health care providers and teachers. If your student has health issues, let us know, we can help!
If your student needs medication or treatment while at school, we can help. We need a completed medication authorization form from an approved health care provider (physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) with a parent's signature. Bring the authorization and medication (in pharmacy-labeled packaging) to the health office to get started. Provider authorization forms can be found below or on the District 6 Health Services page under STUDENT HEALTH CONCERN INFORMATION AND FORMS.
