Nurse Bader

AUGUST 2017

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at SCOPE!  My name is Stacey Bader.  I am the new school nurse for SCOPE.  I have been a pediatric nurse for 17 years and am excited to help keep your kiddos safe and healthy while at school.  Please don’t hesitate to contact with any questions or concerns at 314-467-7980. 

            It is the policy of the Mehlville School District R-9 that all students attending the district schools shall be immunized in accordance with law.  I will be making sure that all of the students at SCOPE are properly immunized.  If your child is not in compliance with the law you will be notified. Your child will not be allowed to attend school until the district has satisfactory evidence on file that your child has been immunized or the immunization process has begun.  If you have further questions regarding immunizations please give me a call.

            On August 21, 2017 a Total Solar Eclipse will occur across the US.  We are fortunate to live in an area that will experience the eclipse and our teachers are preparing for an exciting day of learning for our students!

            Solar Glasses:  Solar glasses will be provided to every student and staff member so they may safely view the eclipse as it moves form partial to total and back to partial again.  Your student will be shown how to properly and safely use the glasses, giving them a protected view of this rare phenomenon. Please help us by reminding your students to NEVER look at the sun directly without solar glasses, as permanent eye damage may occur by looking directly at the sun.

            Sun Protection: Please keep in mind that your child will most likely be outside longer on this day than most school days.  So, please plan accordingly to help protect your child’s skin from the sun. Have them wear light colored clothing and apply sunscreen prior to coming to school.  (Please note that we will not be providing sunscreen, as too many students have skin sensitivities to various ingredients). We are very excited about this event and look forward to it being a safe and memorable day for your child!

 

Again, welcome to the 2017-2018 school year and please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year.

 

Stacey Bader, RN, BSN

SCOPE School Nurse
