Welcome from the CASA Nurse!
I am Ann Stillwater, your new full-time certified school nurse at CASA, and looking forward to getting to know you and your students! After providing school nursing services to thousands of students in two states, I have resources for a wide variety of health concerns.
Your student’s health and safety are very important to the entire CASA community. Please let me know if there are any health concerns that may impact your student at school or if any new conditions arise during the school year.
Medications at school: Remember to have any medication forms completed if your student needs prescription or over-the-counter medicine at school, since a new form is required each school year.
The State of Pennsylvania requirements:
12th grade-a meningitis vaccine BEFORE THE START of the school year. These are usually given at the 11th grade physical.
11th grade a physical examination for all 11th grade students. Paperwork may be completed based on private exams within one year prior to a student’s entry into 11th grade. This means that 10th grade students may have the form completed on exams done during 10th grade. If insurance coverage is an issue, please contact me for assistance.
If your 11th grade student has not had a physical yet, please make an appointment now and have the physical form completed and returned to the school before December 1.
The physician medication order form and 11th grade physical exam form are on the Parents/Students page of the website. It is wise to keep copies of medical paperwork.
Students who are ill and wish to go home must go through the nurse. If your student calls please contact the nurse before having someone pick up your student.
It is a good idea for students to keep extra clothes in their locker.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns!
