Clinic News
Instructor: Mrs. Kristen Mikkelsen, RN, BSN   
My name is Kristen Mikkelsen.  I am happy and excited to be returning to Woodbridge Middle School.  I am a graduate of the University of Texas - Health Science Center, San Antonio.  I have been a Registered Nurse for 19 years with experience from Adult ICU, NICU, Mother/Baby, Case Management and School Health.  I am a proud military spouse with 2 children attending PWC schools and a daughter who is a freshman in college.

The health and safety of your child is my priority and the purpose of the School Health Program is to create an environment of wellness that supports student learning. Please help me by filling out a health treatment plan if your child has a chronic illness or requires special medical treatments. My door is always open to discuss any health concerns you may have.
Health Information
Pennies for Patients at WMS

Woodbridge Middle School students will be taking part in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pennies for Patients program from February 9-27, 2015. During this program, students will collect money to support LLS’s mission: to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Students will learn about service, leadership, philanthropy and how they can make a difference by changing patients’ lives.
Woodbridge Middle School has its own online fundraising page that students, parents and faculty can share with friends and family: http://nca.sy.llsevent.org/WoodbridgeMiddleSchool
Thank you in advance for helping LLS to create a world without blood cancers!

Pennies for Patients
Thank you to all our students and parents who have donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's "Pennies for Patients" fundraiser!  Due to the snow days, we are extending our campaign another week through February 28th. Every penny, nickel, dime, quarter and dollar donated helps save a life!

Medication
Parents, if your child requires medication during school hours it is important that you complete the REQUIRED over-the-counter medication authorization form (Attachment 1 of Regulation 757-4). This regulation pertains to any substance considered medication, including eye drops or oral numbing medication.  New as of 2011-12, students can now self carry cough drops without checking into the clinic first. 

Students caught carrying unauthorized medications in school may be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the PWCS Code of Conduct. This regulation is for the safety and wellness of ALL students at Woodbridge MS. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email the school nurse.

Head Lice - S.C.R.A.T.C.H
Each year, approximately 6 to 12 million children between 3 and 12 years of age are infested with head lice. Because head lice infestations are a concern to schools nationwide, the NASN has launched a campaign, S.C.R.A.T.C.H. (School and Community Resources to Avoid and Take Control of Head Lice). The program is designed to educate school nurses, parents, students and the general public about the prevention and control of head lice.

Please open the S.C.R.A.T.C.H. link located on the right of this page for further information.

Please Report your Student's Illnesses
It is important that you call to report your child's absence as soon as possible, especially when it is due to illness. Please give basic information regarding your child’s illness when calling, stating if he or she has a fever and if there are any other symptoms of influenza. Please do NOT wait to report their illness until they return to school. Thank you for doing your part to help keep Woodbridge Middle students, families, and staff members healthy!
