Gust Elementary

Health Information

Welcome back everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe summer! As we kick off the new school year, here are a few reminders from the Health Clinic:

-Wash your hands often! Washing your hands is the best way to prevent sickness. Wash your hands after using the bathroom, playing outside or touching animals and before and after eating.

-Any student medication (prescription and over the counter) must be kept in the Health Clinic.  A medication release form is also required for any student to be given medication at school-this form includes parent permission and doctor permission. Please see me if you have any questions about this district wide policy or if you need a medication release form.

I am at Gust five days a week. I can support your family in many ways including assisting with access to medical care, immunization questions, insurance, dental care or support with vision services.  I can be reached at 720-424-6565 or please stop by and see me in the main office. All Gust students now have access to the Student Based Health Clinic at Kunsmiller. This a Denver Health based clinic with a Nurse Practitioner on staff that can provide many health services.  To make an appointment, call 720-424-0156. Stay healthy!

Nurse Jaye Horvath
