Nurse's Message

Hello! My name is Mrs. Blake and I am the nurse at Great Oak Middle School. There are many important papers that need to be on file in my office for every student. Please read the information below to see if it pertains to your child. Click on the links to download and print out a copy of the forms if needed. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call me at 203.888.5418 or email me at blakes@oxfordpublicschools.org.

Mandatory Physical Assessment

We have updated the policy for required Physical Exams.  These physicals must be dated between January of 6th grade and December of 7th grade. Please read the attached letter for all information.

Sports at Great Oak

Every student must have an updated Physical on file in my office to practice and tryout. Physicals are valid for 13 months. The following forms are needed:

  • Blue Health Assessment Record, and 
  • a copy of Immunization Record 

A & B forms must be updated once a year. (Forms under Athletics)

Injuries should be reported to the nurse. Doctors must supply a note for use of elevator, crutches and excuse from gym. When cleared, another Doctor's note will be required to resume gym and sports activities.

Medications

No medications should be brought into school by your child. If a medication is needed during school hours, a School Medication Authorization form must be completed and brought in with the medication in its original container. If you would like for your child to receive Regular Strength Tylenol, Ibuprofen, or Tums, during school hours, you must complete the Tylenol and Tums form. This includes any over-the-counter/temporary medication as well.

Absences/Tardy

Any student who will be absent or tardy from school for any reason should call the school before 8:30 am. This is to ensure the safety of your child.

Homework

Homework will be collected for students after he or she has been sick/injured for 3 consecutive days or more. However the child's parent must call the school the morning of the 3rd day of absence to request the homework. You and your child can access PowerSchool for most homework and assignments. Please update PowerSchool with any changes of home and/or cell phone numbers.
