Mrs. Jackson

Welcome to the  Walpole High School Health Office site. My goal is to help your child have a safe, healthy, and successful school day and school year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns 508-660-7257 x 5217

 We will be splitting students the same way the Assistant Principles do.

Starting 11/2/17 the nurse will no longer be able to call a parent for verbal permission to give acetaminophen or ibuprofen.  The state law requires that written consent be received BEFORE either of the meds is given.  It is strongly encouraged that you go to the school website and print/fill out the form and send/email it to the health office.  Your student can also pick up a form and bring it home to be filled out.  

Illness guidelines
Please keep your child home when ill. Also, be sure that your child remains out of school and all public places until he/she has been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. 

Attention Parents:  Please be aware that when you submit a doctors note to excuse an absence it may take up to 2 weeks for it to be entered into the computer. Also please submit the notes as you receive them.  Do not wait to pass in a bunch of notes from months prior - this will only delay the notes being processed.  The note must state that the student was seen or at the very least that the doctor is aware of the illness/issue. Please do not submit a note that has been altered in anyway - these notes will not be accepted. FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE REFER TO THE SCHOOL HANDBOOK

Hand washing and the "safety cough" are the best ways to stay healthy and avoid spreading germs. Wash your hands using soap and warm water, lather for 30 seconds, rinse, and dry with paper towel. Cough into your sleeve, not into your hands.
