Colette Crescas, RN, CSN
Reminders: Several field trips are scheduled for May and June. Please remember that snacks
and lunches MUST be nut free. Also, if your child’s field trip is primarily out of doors, please be
sure that they apply sunscreen and/or insect repellent prior to coming to school that day.
Absences/Tardies: Please remember to call the Health Office at 973-593-3184 if your child is
going to be out of school for the day or coming to school after 8:45 a.m. I often do not get the
notes from teachers about vacations or time off, so please let me know directly.
What’s Happening: This week, I will be continuing health screening for students in kindergarten
and 1st grade. I will be checking their height, weight, blood pressure, vision, and hearing. The
children are having fun using the vision and hearing tester and I’m having fun chatting with them!
The 2nd and 3rd graders will be screened during the weeks of May 13th and 20th. My goal is to have
all of the children screened by the end of May. PLEASE remember that if you (have) receive(s) a
health referral letter, ask your child’s doctor to complete it the form and return it to before the
end of the school year.
Seasonal Allergies: ‘Tis the season for allergies….aaachooo! Spring seasonal allergies are in full
bloom here in Madison. Many children suffer from itchy, watery eyes, stuffy nose, headaches,
and stomach aches. Often, pollen can easily be removed from eyelashes and lids with a wet paper
towel. Washing hands will also prevent pollen from spreading to the person’s face. In the mean-
time, when a child comes to the Health Office with allergic symptoms, I use a Bausch and Lomb
saline solution to rinse out eyes and warm water with salt to gargle. Of note is that Zyrtec is now
available OTC and can be given in liquid form once in the morning and once at bedtime. If your
child requires medication for allergies, please read the medication section.

Tick Bites:
It’s also the season f or tick bites. Prevention is definitely key, in this case! Wear
light colored long pants tucked into socks when walking or playing in grassy or wooded areas. It’s
easier to see a tick with light colored clothing and tucking the pants in helps to prevent ticks
from attaching to the skin and crawling up the legs. I am enclosing a pamphlet that reviews tick
removal and facts about Lyme disease.
Medication Administration: Per district policy, I can not administer any medication without a doc-
tor’s order. This includes Over the Counter (OTC) medication such as Claritin, nasal sprays, and
eye drops. If you would like your child to receive either a prescription or OTC medication while at
school, please ask your physician to FAX an order to me at 973-966-1925. You can then bring the
medication in the original container to the Health Office, complete a form, and I will be able to
administer it.
