Where am I?

Nurse's Corner

!!! Alerts !!!

There are no current health alerts.

 

My name is Stacey Frank, RN and I am the nurse at Spring Hill High School.  Before joining the school district I worked at a local hospital for 12 years in obstetrics/gynecology and then I spent 2 ½ years working in home health. 

I welcome you to call or email me if your child has any health concerns that you would like to discuss with me.  I especially want to be made aware of things such as asthma, allergies, seizures, special diets, injuries or surgeries, or new medications.  Good communication between you and I will ensure that I can provide the best health care at school. Please browse the Health Forms page for medical forms, if needed.

Spring Hill High School has a medication policy that allows students to carry plain Tylenol or Ibuprofen in the original container for their use only.  For the safety of our students, all other over-the-counter or prescription medications need to be kept in the health office.

If your child receives any immunizations this year, please provide written documentation to update his or her health records at school.

Hearing and vision screening is done in the fall for all freshman, juniors, new students and students with a special need.  You will only be notified if there is a concern with your child's screening.

 

When Should Your Child Stay Home From School?

My motto is “You can’t graduate from the nurse’s office, so let’s get you back to class!”, but there are illnesses that require you to keep your child at home.  Spring Hill School District follows the exclusion recommendations as set forth by the Johnson County Health Department.  Please see JCHD Exclusion Recommendations (pdf, 47.96KB) for other conditions not listed below.  Please follow these guidelines:

  • Your child must be excluded from school if he or she has a fever of 100 degrees or higher.  Your child may return to school when he or she has been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing drugs.
  • Your child must be free of any illness symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, purulent eye, ear or nose drainage for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Your child should also stay home for the first 24 hours after starting antibiotics.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach me at 913-592-7253 Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

Looking forward to a healthy year, 

Stacey Frank, RN
