:uhoh3:I have been a school nurse x 2yrs and this spring I am seeing more "allergy eyes"...I give the elementary school students cold compresses (gauze & ice water), but one after the other is just too much. Between 12-2pm is when we see most of these students, the nurse room looks like a zoo, literally standing room only at times. Any suggestions, its hard to write a note to each parent about allergy meds, but we do try. Where they play outside,its just dirt..they are trying to plant grass but no luck, so the dry dirt & pollen is making this season worst. Plus in winter this is mud!! this is an urban school too.what to do?
