    • Has been vomiting or has diarrhea
    • Thick mucus or green nasal discharge
    • Red, itchy eyes with drainage
    • Suspected head lice. The student may return to school after being treated with shampoo, such as Nix.

     

    Please notify the nurse’s office 215-809-6376 of any health incident, such as strep throat, conjunctivitis, broken bones, or surgery.

     

    Sincerely,

  • Ferderbar earns a SWPBIS banner! 

    Congratulations to our School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (SWPBIS) team! SWPBIS is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject. The Ferderbar program was evaluated to determine if use of SWPBIS procedures is related to valued change in the safety, social culture, and violent behavior in schools. Ferderbar passed with flying colors. The team will be recognized this spring in Hershey at the annual State conference on SWPBIS.
