Health Services

Since 2017, Gray Stone Day School has employed a full time Nationally Certified School Nurse. School nurses are responsible for planning, implementing, coordinating and evaluating school health services. School nurses help to maximize students’ in-class time by reducing the incidence of health related absenteeism; minimize students’ health problems; promote students’ highest degree of independent functioning; and promote student and staff awareness of healthy behaviors. Our school nurse follows federal, state and local health practice statutes, policies and procedures.

Medication Guidelines:
Students must have a Physician’s Authorization Form completed by their physician to have ANY medication at school. This includes over-the-counter medications as well as prescriptions medications. Epi-Pens, Asthma Inhalers and Diabetic supplies are the ONLY medications students may self-carry. All other medications are stored in the nurse’s office for administration.

Sick Child Guidelines:
You should keep your sick at home when:

  • Students with a temperature of 100 or above will be sent home and shall not return until fever free for 24 hours without medication.
  • Children with diarrhea, nausea or vomiting shall not attend school and shall be symptom free for 24 hours from the last episode before returning.
  • Other symptoms to keep children at home include: unidentifiable body rashes or eye redness and drainage; sore throat with fever and swollen glands; persistent deep cough.

Gray Stone Day School’s Updates Related to Covid-19 (8/10/22)

Exclusion from school is no longer recommended following an exposure, when a COVID-19 case is identified in the school setting. However, schools may notify potentially exposed students or staff so they can receive appropriate public health guidance, testing, and access to any resources that might be needed; notification can be on an individual, group, or school basis.

  • Exclude student/staff from school if positive for COVID-19 for 5 days from onset of symptoms, or specimen collection date of positive test if no symptoms.
    • Students must be fever free for 24 hours (without using fever reducing medicine); and other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving.
    • Students must wear a mask on days 6-10 once they return to school to decrease risk of spread. If student is unable to wear a mask, they may stay home through day 10 without penalty to their attendance.
  • Student/staff with symptoms of COVID-19 should notify the school nurse. Students must have a negative PCR/molecular/antigen test OR visit a health care provider and receive an alternate diagnosis that would explain the symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Student/staff with symptoms of COVID-19 but have not been tested for COVID-19 nor have visited a health care provider will be presumed positive for COVID-19
    • Student must stay home for 5 days from when symptoms started
