Hello Canyon Rim Parents and Students,

 

My name is Staci Sutton and I am the new nurse starting at Canyon Rim this year.  While I am new to Canyon Rim, I am not new to Gilbert Public Schools.  I have been the nurse at Burk Elementary for the last 13 years and the year prior to that, I was a substitute nurse in the district.  

 

I have been a RN for 27 years, completing my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing at ASU in 1991.  I also hold a Master’s in Nursing from NAU which I completed in Dec. 2013.  My nursing background, besides school nursing, is pediatrics. I worked at St. Joe’s in Phoenix for 5 years, starting my senior year at ASU, and then for 4 years after that.  I am also a National Certified Pediatric Nurse and a National Certified School Nurse.

 

Just a few quick reminders before the school year starts.

  1. Per district policy, students are not permitted to transport medications to and from school.  The three exceptions are albuterol inhalers, epinephrine injectors, and glucagon.  Any medication needed by a student requires paperwork to be filled out by a parent and possibly a physician, including the three exceptions listed above.
  2. Sick kids belong at home.  If your child has a temperature over 101 degrees, they need to stay home.  That being said, most kids don’t feel well once they have a temperature over 100 degrees.  Please do not send your child to school until they have been free of fever for 24 hours without the use of any over-the counter fever reducers. If you have to use medication to keep their temperature under control, they do not belong at school.
  3. A child that has vomiting or diarrhea should stay home until the vomiting and/or diarrhea has stopped for 24 hours without the assistance of over-the-counter medication.
  4. We do not give Tylenol (acetaminophen) at the elementary school level, except for the following reason - a student has a temperature over 102 degrees and it will be greater than 30 minutes before the student can be picked up.  Please do not ask for Tylenol (acetaminophen) to be given to your student for aches and pains as this is not our practice in the district.

 

I look forward to meeting everyone once the school year starts.  Please don’t hesitate to call or stop in if you have any questions or concerns.  I will be back in the office starting Friday, July 27th. I will also be on campus for “Meet the Teacher” night.
