Tamika Moore, LPN

My name is Nurse Tamika Moore, and I am the new school nurse. This is my first year at Orange Elementary School and I am very excited about serving the Cheetah Nation Family!

I live in Orange County with my husband, children, and our family dog. I am an LPN Nurse and served asa nurse in NJ and Virginia for the past 8 years. My background is in Pediatrics working in homecare, Pediatrician office, and Pediatric Psychiatric Group Homes. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening,
and serving at my local church, spending time with my family. I love serving the pediatric community and look forward to a great year!

In addition to COVID-19, we will be faced with cold and flu season. There are times when the only way to prevent the spread of illness is to keep students who are ill out of school.  Keeping children home when they are too sick for school protects other students and staff from potential illness.

Symptoms that the child is too sick for school.

  • Fever: Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above. The child must be fever-free 24 hours without fever-reducing medication before returning to school.
  • Vomiting: The child should not return to school for 24 hours following the last episode of vomiting. 
  • Diarrhea: Children with watery stools should not return to school for 24 hours following the last episode of diarrhea. 
  • Eye Infection: Pink eye (conjunctivitis) or thick mucus or pus draining from the eye should not return to school for 24 hours after starting treatment. 
  • Sore Throat: With fever or swollen glands in the neck. Students should stay home until seen by the doctor. 
  • Unknown Rash- Must be seen by a doctor for an unidentified rash before returning to school. 
  • Cough: Children sent to the office with persistent cough, with an inability to stay in class, will be sent home.  
  • Ear infection: Without fever can attend school, but the child may need medical treatment and follow-up. Untreated ear infections can cause permanent hearing loss.

 Lice, Scabies: Children may not return to school until they have been treated and are free of live lice (must be checked by school nurse before returning).  Children with scabies can be admitted after treatment.
