Health Notice to VLUS Families
Posted on 05/12/2015
This spring has been tough for anyone with seasonal allergies. Some kids are especially sensitive to the pollen, and the symptoms can distract them from their school work. The health office cannot supply allergy medications (antihistamines, eye drops, nasal sprays). If your child needs medication for his or her allergies, make sure that you give the medication before s/he leaves for school. These medications work best when given regularly. Please do not give your child Benadryl to relieve allergy discomfort. If your child feels especially uncomfortable, talk with your doctor or nurse practitioner about the best way to treat allergy discomfort.

Please call our school nurse, Mary-Margaret Segraves, RN, Ph. D, at 316.349.6600 x295 if you have any questions about seasonal allergies.
