Our Nurse

  • ​Elizabeth Lane Elementary has a full-time nurse, Amy Lattimore, BSN, RN. She can be reached by calling the school at 980-343-5700 or via email at amy.lattimore@mecknc.gov

    • If your child should need medication while at school, a medication authorization form needs to be completed by you and your doctor. This includes prescriptions, over the counter medications and other items such as cough drops, and lotions. Links to these forms are listed below. Please note there is a generic form as well as forms specific to chronic illnesses.  
    • If your child needs a medication during the day and you would like to deliver it to the school, you must be the one to administer the medication. This is a CMS/Mecklenburg County Policy. 

Requirements for Kindergarteners and students new to CMS

  • Each child new to CMS will need a Health Assessment (physical) dated within the 12 months prior to the first day of school. A copy of your child's up to date immunization record is also required. (Copies of immunizations printed by former schools will not be accepted. They must be documents from a medical provider, etc., or copies of those will suffice.) These forms need to be submitted within 30 calendar days of the start of school. 

    Feel free to send forms in as they are completed or over the summer. The required Physical Assessment form link is below. Immunization guidelines are also linked below. Thank you for working with us to make sure your child is safe while at school.  

Reporting Covid Positive Cases and Exposures

  • Our school Covid team will communicate individually to provide return dates and criteria for individuals who have tested positive or are quarantining due to a close contact exposure. If your child has tested positive within the past ten days, or has been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive within the last 14 days, please report this information as soon as possible by emailing our nurse.
