Hi, I'm Mrs. Schnack your child's School Nurse Teacher.  I've been at Stony Lane for over 20 years and love being here.  I'm here to help your child(ren) through all the little bumps (and big ones too!) that come along during the school day.  I'm here for you and your family, please feel free to contact me on the clinic line 268-6543 or via email @ anytime.

Calling your child out absent and when to keep your child home

Please call the clinic line at (401-268-6543) or email me at when you anticipate that your child will be tardy or absent.  If your child is out ill it is helpful to know your child's symptoms so that I can determine if an outbreak of one particular illness is occurring in the classroom or school. We ask that children stay home for the following reasons:

  • Fever >100.4 F

  • Thick drainage from the nose or eyes or a cold that a young child cannot manage in the classroom

  • Vomiting or diarrhea

  • Persistent cough

  • Excessive fatigue and lethargy due to their illness

  • Known contagious condition (ie. strep throat, impetigo) that has not been properly treated

This year during it is important for your child to stay home for Any signs or symptoms of illness. Likewise I will contact you if your child become ill at all during the school day. All guidelines from the RIDOH will be followed. Please refer to the playbook for more information:
