Welcome back for our 2023-2024 school year!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful and restful summer spending time with family and friends! I am looking forward to working with each one of you to ensure that this year is both healthy and safe for every member of our Magnolia family. Our students learn best when their health is at its optimum. If, at any time, you feel a need to discuss the health of your child, please do not hesitate to contact me. As the school year begins, I would like to remind you of some important school policies to make note of:
- Immunizations: Immunizations are important to ensure that our students interact in a safe and healthy environment. If your child has received updated immunizations during the summer, please provide a copy of the updated Immunization record. Sixth grade students require TDap and Meningococcal immunizations to return in September.
- Medications: If your child requires administration of daily or as-needed medications during school hours, please complete and return the required forms located on our website. Please note, an adult will need to bring the medication up to the school, they may not be transported by your child. If you would like your child to be able to receive Tylenol/Ibuprofen/Tums if needed, you can fill out the Tylenol permission form and have your child return it to the nursing office.
- If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home from school. Be mindful that a temperature of 100 or higher requires a student to stay at home until fever free for 24 hours without taking any fever-reducing medications. Any absence of 3 or more days requires a doctor’s note in order to return to school.
-If your child is pre-k-1st grade, please make sure that he/she has a change of clothes including socks and underwear that they keep here at school in case of an accident.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me anytime! I look forward to another wonderful year!
About Me:I would like to take this time to introduce myself as the new school nurse here at Magnolia Public School. My name is Sandra Marlys and I began my nursing career in 2002, when I graduated with my ASN from Gwynedd Mercy College. I started my career at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in 2002 where I worked in oncology, followed by Labor and Delivery. After sixteen and a half years in the hospital, I knew that it was time for a change.
School nursing has always something that I have been passionate about and I always knew that at some point in my life I would pursue a career as a school nurse. I attended Rutgers University from June 2018-December 2019 where I obtained my school nurse certificate. Meanwhile, I had left my career at Jefferson in September and began working as a school nurse in the Pennsauken School District where I floated between the High, Middle and Intermediate Schools.
January 2019 I embarked on my new journey here at Magnolia. I am so honored to be a part of such a wonderful and caring community. I currently reside locally in Stratford with my husband and two sons. It is my goal here at Magnolia to keep our children healthy, safe, in school, and ready to learn. I truly believe that communication is key, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns, . The transition to this school has been amazing. I would like to thank you all for welcoming me into your community and allowing me to take care of your children.
