Get To Know Nurse Lynsey
My name is Lynsey and I started here at Elmwood as the District Nurse in January of 2022. I graduated from the University of Toledo with my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing in 2019. After graduation, I worked at Russell J. Ebeid Children's Hospital in Toledo on the General Pediatrics floor for two years. In November of 2023, I became a nationally certified school nurse (NCSN). I have a wonderful husband, Travis, and a daughter, Paisley. We have two dogs, Miley and Cooper. I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends. A fun fact about myself is that I have a total of 30 nieces and nephews!
Fevers and Vomiting: Students cannot return to school until they have been fever free (without medication) for 24 hours. Students should not attend school if they have vomited in the last 24 hours.
Covid-19: We are now treating Covid-19 the same as other illnesses. Students who have tested positive can return to school once they are symptom free for 24 hours.
Diabetes: If your student has diabetes, please reach out to Nurse Lynsey. You will need to have your child's endocrinologist send over a copy of their diabetes management plan. You will need to provide all medications. Nurse Lynsey does have a supply of juice boxes and snacks on hand to help manage low blood sugars, but please provide some if your child has specific snack preferences (they can be stored in the nurse's clinic). Attached below is a helpful guide for ensuring your student is prepared for the school year.
Lice: Elmwood has a no lice, no nit policy. If a student is sent home with lice or nits, they will need to be checked by the nurse or another school administrator before they can return to class. Attached below is some helpful resources to help prevent, control, and treat lice.
Health Clinic Forms
Medications At School: All medications for students in all grade levels (PS-12) need to be on file with the nurse. This includes over the counter medications and prescription medications. If your child needs to take medication while at school, the form attached below needs to be completed by the prescribing physician and signed by a parent or guardian and turned in to the school. Please note that students can NOT bring their own medications into school with them. A parent or guardian needs to drop them off to Nurse Lynsey.

The form below needs to be completed if you do NOT want your child to receive their grade required immunizations. Please circle the immunization(s) you are exempting from and circle a reason. (Please note that if you circle medical as your reason for exemption, it MUST be accompanied by a note from the child's physician.)
