WELCOME BACK, WILDCATS!

Hello, everyone and welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year!  My name is Barb Ratliff and this is my fourth year as the school nurse at Stewartsville Elementary. Our clinic is open daily from 7:30 a.m. – 2:35 p.m.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need to discuss your child’s health concern/medication with me.  The school number is (540)890-2174.

Important items as we move forward in the year:

WE ARE DIGITAL!

This will be our second year using the CareDox electronic medical record.  It allows you to be notified of your child’s clinic visit through email.  This will be the only way that you will be notified of your child's clinic visits unless there is an emergency.  If you haven’t already, I encourage you to sign up for CareDox; you should have received an email with further instructions on this procedure.  It is a very convenient means of communication regarding your child and his/her health.  

All information is stored securely and is HIPAA and FERPA compliant. 

You may email the Parent Support Team at CareDox if you have not received an email from them at activation@CareDox.com. 

 

 If your child has an allergy that requires an epi-pen or has asthma, seizures, diabetes, or any other medical condition potentially requiring treatment at school, please return the health care plan from your physician AND any medication to the clinic.  This is very important and could greatly impact your child’s health and safety should they need them at school.

I hope you all are settling into the new school year healthy. 

I look forward to helping your children have a safe and healthy 2017-2018 school year.

 

Barb Ratliff, RN
