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.

Garrett’s Law (N.C. Senate Bill 444)
Garrett’s Law was enacted in 2004 and expanded in 2007 mandates that schools provide parents/legal guardians with information about meningococcal meningitis, flu, human papillomavirus (HPV), and vaccines that protect against these diseases.
