Happy National Nurses Day to Nurse Lundy! She does such an amazing job keeping all the kids safe and healthy at SJCHS! We thank you, Nurse Lundy!

We observe National School Nurse Day today. It’s a day when we come together to honor the field of school nursing.

School nurses serve a critical role in improving public health and in ensuring student’s academic success. They also act as a liaison to the school community, families, and healthcare providers on behalf of children’s health by promoting wellness and improving health outcomes for children.

From all of us at FMS, thank you so much!

We are living in unprecedented times right now and it is extremely important to take care of your mental health. Sacramento City Unified School District created a Virtual Calming Room that is a great resource for adults and children alike. It is a place for families to find tools and strategies for managing emotions and feelings as well as building resilience. When you have a spare moment check it out! There are links for music, meditation, live animal cameras and more!

It’s Red Ribbon Week – a time dedicated to encouraging kids to make healthy choices and stay alcohol- and substance-free.

Our classrooms look quite a bit different this year, and families are spending more time together than ever before, giving us more ways to have conversations with our kids—and bridge the gap between prevention efforts at home and at school.

Below is a video that is a great way to start the conversation with your student about staying alcohol- and substance-free.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your School Nurse or other Health Services Staff Member.

Have a great weekend!

FMS Health Services would like to send a huge “Thank You” to parents, family members, teachers, and staff for making our return to in-person learning a success yesterday. We thank you for all that you do and for your cooperation as we continue to return more students to school. Our Health Assistants and School Nurses were so excited to see our students in the building. We love our students!

Please remember to complete the RUVNA Screening for your student every day before they get on the bus or arrive at school. Also, please also remember to send your student with a mask and full water bottle to school each day.

If you have any questions about masks, RUVNA or any other health concerns for your student as they return to in-person learning, please reach out to your School Nurse or other FMS Health Services staff member.

It’s Mental Illness Awareness Week!
Each year millions of American’s face the reality of living with a mental illness. You are not alone. Now, more than ever, we need to find ways to stay connected with our community. No one should feel alone, or without the information, support, and help they need.
Your school nurse, social worker and counselor are available to you if you don’t know where to start.

With so many mask types out there, how do you know what to choose, or what not to choose? Keep in mind some of these quick tips! A face mask, or face covering, should completely cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly against the sides of your face. You should be able to breathe easily. Masks with a moldable nose piece can be helpful for those who wear glasses as a snug fitting nose section can decrease fogging.

For children, try and find masks specifically sized for kids, they could provide better protection. Never place a face covering on a child younger than 2 years old.

Neck gaiters, scarves, bandanas and masks with vents or valves are not approved face coverings at this time. Also, a face shield does not replace a face mask.

If you have any questions, reach out to your School Nurse or other FMS Health Services staff member.

As we prepare for re-entry in our elementary schools on Oct. 13th- please be aware that to keep our students/staff as safe as possible, we will be following current guidelines regarding symptoms of COVID-19. In-person students/staff with ANY known symptoms of COVID-19 will be asked to isolate and follow current recommendations. Please read and share!! We are excited to see some of our students back in-person and want everyone to remain healthy and safe.

Covering coughs and sneezes and keeping hands clean can help prevent the spread of serious respiratory illnesses like influenza and COVID-19. To help stop the spread of germs cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.

Don’t forget to immediately wash your hands after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing!

If you have any questions, reach out to your School Nurse or other Health Services Staff.

Is it Asthma? Allergies? COVID-19?
With such a wide range of symptoms that can indicate COVID-19, it can be difficult to determine when a child has COVID symptoms, or if symptoms are related to Asthma or Allergies. Your school nurse can be a good resource to discuss concerns you have related to asthma and returning to school! Take a look at this guide to help navigate these symptoms.
Remember, as we come into flu season it is important now, more than ever, to keep children home who have any COVID like symptoms and discuss with your healthcare provider and school nurse when it is safe to come to school. We're in this together!

Don’t forget to send your student to school with a full water bottle, each and every day! We are aiming to reduce the amount of highly-used touch points in every school, this includes water fountains. Providing water from home helps keep our students safe and keeps more money where it belongs, in the classroom!!

If you have any questions, please reach out to your school nurse or other Health Services staff member.

Why practice social distancing?
COVID-19 spreads mainly by people who are in close contact with one another for a prolonged period of time. Since people can spread the virus before they even know if they are sick, it is important to stay at least 6 feet away from people, even if you – or they – have no symptoms. Social distancing is especially important for those at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19.

When going out in public, it is very important to keep a distance of 6 feet away from other people and wear a mask.

If you have any questions reach out to your school nurse or other Health Services staff.
