OVERVIEW
My name is Missy Cottrell and I am the nurse at BSMS.

Please check out the Student Health Services page on the Granville County Schools website. It has additional information regarding immunizations, illnesses, copies of medication forms, and some links to different websites.

I look forward to working with you and your child this school year. My scheduled day to be at BSMS is Wednesday, but I am available any time. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at Missy Cottrell cottrellm@gcs.k12.nc.us .
MY CHILD IS FEELING SICK. SHOULD I KEEP THEM AT HOME?
Did You Know?

Most health issues/procedures can be handled at school. Therefore, students should not have to miss more than the allotted number of days per semester, due to health reasons. Call your school nurse regarding accommodations that can be implemented to keep your child in school.

We recommend students stay home from school for the following reasons:
- Fever of 100.5 degrees or higher
- Fever of 100 degrees with rash, known exposure to communicable disease, headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or respiratory infection
- Crusty, red, weepy eyes
- Head Lice
- Vomiting/Diarrhea within 8 hours before coming to school
- Asthma symptoms that are not responding to medication
