School Notes

I send a variety of notes to my patients’ school each year.  I have a few templates that I use but oftentimes parents ask for a very specific message to be sent to their child’s teacher and school nurse.  I am grateful when they provide a letter to sign rather than have me write it, then they revise it and I resign it.  You know your child’s school set up and you know the school’s policies.  Here are a few typical options, feel free to edit it to be more specific for your child’s needs.  Your child’s provider will be grateful that you have it ready for them.
