School Health

Hello, my name is Mrs. Lauren Bodenschatz and I am the new school nurse here at Richland Elementary! I am beyond excited to care for your child during their school day. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year. My goal is to provide nursing services to students while promoting education and wellness. Please contact me with any questions or concerns and we will work together to make this a great year for everyone!

Important To Remember

  • Medication forms should be turned in with any prescription or over the counter medication (students should not transport medications!)
  • If your child has asthma or a life threatening allergy, please have an asthma action plan filled out or a food allergy action plan.
  • Students may not carry any type of medication with them (except inhalers or epi-pens), If a student needs to have medication during school hours, it must be brought in by an adult with appropriate paperwork!
  • Please keep your child home with any vomiting, diarrhea or fevers 100 degrees or higher
  • IMMMUNIZATIONS: If students are not up to date on vaccines or do not have appropriate documentation of exemption or catch up schedule, the student will be exempt from school after 5 days. If you have questions or concerns please contact me for further information.
