Q. How is The Master's School responding to COVID-19?
Q. Where is The Master's School getting their guidance on the coronavirus and where do you suggest we look if we have questions?
Q. How do I talk to my child(ren) about coronavirus?
Q. If I have a general medical question, how do I contact the School Nurse?
To reach our nurse, you may email Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may call the school, 860-651-9361, and option 6 will direct you to Jamie’s voice mail. Your phone message will be emailed to Jamie, and she will respond within the 10 a.m.-12 p.m. time period. (Jamie will also respond within 24 hours to parent concerns and questions left after 12 p.m.)
Please note that when you call Jamie at the school, this is the message you will receive:
“Hello, you have reached Jamie Dagenais, The Master’s School Nurse Line available from (10am-12pm) on scheduled school days. Please leave your name, your child’s name, and reason for your call. Please contact your doctor for any illness or medical concerns requiring immediate attention. CALL 911 in the event of any medical emergency and 211 for any COVID-19 concerns. Stay safe and be well.”
During this time of distance learning, it is also important that parents continue to report their child’s illnesses to Jamie just as if they were attending school on campus. This will help her in reaching out to families/students during this time, and it is helpful as the town of Simsbury continues to collect and report data via the school nurses to watch for trends of illnesses that may be occurring.
To reiterate what you will hear in Jamie’s voicemail message:
- In the event of a medical emergency contact 911
- For immediate medical concerns, contact your physician
- Questions and concerns related to COVID-19, please call 211
Please also note that school nurse follow-up with parents regarding completion of any outstanding State of CT mandated physical exams for grade 6 or 10 students has been deferred until further notice.
