Never too early to make plans for next year! How do you get your care plans returned from parents? Is there a note you put with your care plan to send out?
This past year, my first full year as a school nurse, I sent out care plans throughout the summer with phone calls made to each parent and then did a last call for care plans the week before school started. Yeah... that didn't go so well. I did get SOME care plans in, but not a lot.
A co-worker said she asked for care plans the last month of school and saw an ever so slight increase in returned care plans.
Also, I have 7 schools (just over 6,000 students), though only a fraction of the students need care plans, I can imagine you understand that there still are a lot.
