Hi I'm Nurse Carlton. I received my RN and BSN from Queens University and have been a nurse for 17 years. I have 4 children, one in college and 3 in CMS schools. I love to travel and to eat. I worked for Carolinas Healthcare Systems for 10 years and for the last 7, I have been the school nurse here at Ranson IB Middle School. In addition to Ranson, I have also covered numerous other schools; elementary, middle, and high school. Ranson is by far my favorite place to be! I am here to assist the scholars increase their health knowledge base and maintain their health so it is not a barrier to their success. Some barriers to learning that I can assist with might be a need for glasses, a chronic illness that needs managing such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, severe allergies, or attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD). I am also here to assist with any illness or injury and can administer medication if needed. My goal is to keep all scholars in class, on task, and ready to learn.
Health Room News!
IMMUNIZATIONS: Updated immunization records are NOW DUE.
All scholars should have a completed immunization record on file at the school. Scholars entering the 7th grade should have a Tdap booster and a Menactra vaccine, as is required by NC state law. All updated records should be on file by the 30th day of school, September 26th, in order to prevent exclusion.
There will be an Immunization Clinic held on Monday, September 18th at the school by the Novant Community Care Cruiser. Your scholar can receive 7th grade shots, free of charge, by signing a permission form in the front office. There will be another clinic on exclusion day, Thursday, September 27th.
In addition, Mecklenburg County Public Health will have Big Shots Saturdays in September.
VISION SCREENINGS: It
is now time for our 6th grade mass vision screenings. If your scholar wears glasses, please ensure
they are prepared by wearing their glasses to school. If your scholar does not pass the screening,
they will come home with a referral to be examined by an eye doctor. Please contact me if you need help.
MEDICATION AND EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS: Please inform the front office if your scholar needs to take medicine at school. All medications, even over the counter meds, need a medication authorization form completed by your doctor and signed by a parent. You must provide the medicine in the original bottle with the label from pharmacy. If your scholar has a chronic illness, such as asthma, severe allergies, seizures, or diabetes, please complete an Emergency Action Plan. These forms are very important in helping us keep your scholar safe and healthy while a school.
