I created these nurse passes for several reasons. First, I wanted the passes to be ready to go when an ailment presented itself. Second, I wanted to be able to keep track of the types of ailments and their frequency. These nurse passes are a solution to both of those problems and also allows me to easily share the information with the parents. To make the cards, simply update your info onto the cards, print them out on cardstock (2 sided- for those students who visit the nurse frequently), punch a hole in the top corner and secure with a book ring. In my classroom, these passes are on a hook by my desk, so I can just flip to the child's name and then they are on their way. When the child returns, I remove their pass and send it home to be initialed by a parent. This way, I don't have to call home for every bruise and bump, yet the parents are still informed. These cards have also helped me recognize patterns when some children request to visit the nurse regularly. Is it a coincidence you get sick during math?
