Nurse's Corner for West Middle and Foothills Community Schools

Welcome to the Nurses Corner. 
On this site, you will be able to find out what is going on related to health at my schools.  I will try to keep a calendar of events and things for you to look at for each month.  I also have included to the right --> of this page, forms you may need throughout the year for health concerns with your child.  Please feel free to download these and sent to me as conditions change.
Since West and Foothills are in the same building, I am there most days but I would call first if planning to visit me.
Normally my hours are 8 am - 3 pm.

Foothills Community School Overnight Field Trip
Reminder that their first Overnight Field Trip will be the First day of school this year.  Please be sure to contact the school nurse with any health information about your student and any medications they may need for the trip.  Medication Authorization form is in the forms on the right.  Print off as many as you need for medications and be sure to bring these with you on the night of Open House in August.  Don't hesitate to contact the nurse via email over the summer if you have questions or concerns.  Diana.McEntire@mcdowell.k12.nc.us.  I check this often over the summer and will get back with you as soon as possible.
REMINDER on Medications
No Student can carry Medications around with them at school unless
An Emergency Medication 
that has been approved by the school nurse.  This is a North Carolina State Law.  Any
student found with an unauthorized medication on them can get up to 1 year of suspension from school.  Also note that teachers and staff cannot give your child Tylenol, Ibuprofen or anything else not even if the parent calls them.  To do so is against the law and could cost them their job.  
Please Do Not Ask.
Health Forms can be found below.  Please print off as needed and return to the School Nurse Office.
