CLOTH MASKS FOR WORK

*this post contains affiliate links*

WORK WEAR...

For all my years as a school nurse, I've worn business casual. 
This fall (2020-2021) though I'm actually debating wearing scrubs
What about you? 
Regardless of what is covering the majority of my body, I'm 100% certain a mask will be covering my mouth and nose; same for you?

During these last few months I've worn either a disposable mask or a homemade cloth mask when needed. However, I want to be prepared with variety of cloth masks each work day, in additional to ample disposable masks- depending on each situation.

What do your return to school plans look like when it comes to face coverings for you, general staff and the students?
Will your school have extras to hand out as needed or will you require staff and students to always have their own?

FASHIONABLE CLOTH MASKS FOR WORK!

Ready or not, the new school year is right around the corner.

I decided it was time to get serious about planning and start ordering some supplies for myself and my school. I'm starting with myself now and am going to order several (probably 30) cloth face masks from SHEIN! I've ordered clothing items before and have always been impressed with the quality considering the low cost. For me, the shirts and swimsuits have been true to size. I'm hoping I'll be just as happy with my face mask order too!

TOP RATED FACE MASKS

At the time of this writing, SHEIN has 169 face masks in their "top rating" category! 
That seems like more than enough options, but I'll break them down for you too.

NO CONTACT THERMOMETERS

These thermometers are HOT HOT HOT! 

The School Nurse is highlighting a few no contact thermometers that (as of this posting) are on MAJOR sale with Amazon! Although the thermometers will be available for longer, the sale prices are only available for a short time.  I absolutely love my Welch Allyn suretemp, but it is not no-contact and we know no-contact is the way this fall.


Take a look at the current no-contact thermometer sales Amazon is offering now...












Four star rating & 50% off for a limited time with free shipping.





Lastly, this one is 40% off, but no ratings as of yet...

SCHOOL NURSE SHIRTS

Finding a school nurse specific t-shirt is so exciting!

It's like finding a personalized bicycle plate when you're a child who has a uniquely spelled name (that would be me & I still haven't found one, but my mom did order me a personalized place mat once!) Anyway, I'm getting side tracked. 


A school nurse t-shirt with a paired with scrub pants will make picking out your work outfit so much easier. Also, with so many current COVID concerns, it seems many school nurses are considering wearing scrubs next school year. If that sounds like you, then one of these t-shirts might be perfect; Amazon has some amazing options - let's take a look at a few...

ATHLETE MONITORING FORM FOR COACHES

*affiliate links are used in the post*

GUIDELINES

Currently, many schools are allowing some sort of "Return to Play" for athletes.  Schools are being encouraged to work with their local health departments in order to have appropriate guidelines in place.  Since the health and safety of students remains the top priority; the guidelines seem to stress that athlete training sessions at this time are completely voluntary and those who opt to participate are only allowed to complete strength, conditioning and cardio type workouts.  

In addition, outdoor workouts are highly encouraged and only after students have met the health screening criteria.  In Illinois the guidelines are as follows:
