KHS Health Room
Welcome to the Kensington HS Virtual Health Room
My name is Lourdes Delgado and I am the School nurse. I have been at Kensington High school since 2001. I have been in the School District of Philadelphia since 1999. As a School District of Philadelphia School Nurse, I am prepared to keep your children safe, when we return to the building.
If you need to reach me, the best way is through email. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. As we begin the 2020-2021 School year, I have attached forms that you need to have completed at your child’s doctor appointments.
For ALL students:
Each year, the district and state require that every student complete the Student Health Status Form (S865). This form provides valuable information regarding your son/daughter’s health condition. This form also provides permission for your child to opt-out or take Tylenol/ and or ibuprofen during the school day. The S865 form is attached. Please print it out, complete it and mail it back to email@example.com
All students are required to be up to date with their immunizations. Please be sure that your child is up to date with all required district and state requirements on the first day of school, and turned in during registration. All Incomplete vaccines are due by the 5th day from the admission date or an appointment date is required for admission to the school. A copy of the required immunization schedule is attached.
By the time students enter the 12th Grade/16 years old, they are required to have a second Meningitis Vaccine (MCV4) or booster. Please check your child’s records and make an appointment with your child’s provider if necessary.
All 11th Grade students are required to have a physical examination by their primary doctor. Please be sure to schedule an appointment with your child’s doctor and have the MEH-1 Form completed at the visit.
For all students who require MEDICATION OR TREATMENTS to be given in school:
Any student that is required to take medication or receive treatment during the school day, (such as asthma inhalers, diabetes medications, ADHD or seizure medications, etc) must have a MED-1 Form filled out by their doctor. Please request a specific form for Seizures and Asthma medications.
Some students may require a temporary or long term GYM EXEMPTION:
For any student that has a diagnosed medical condition and is unable to fully participate in physical education upon return to the school building, please ask the doctor to complete the MEH-23 Form.
Upon completion of all forms, please scan them and then email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with all of you in the coming year. Please stay healthy and safe!
