"Healthy students learn better." Although it is important for students to be at school every day, the health staff would like to review the general guidelines for students coming to school. Please take a few moments to read the following protocols.
Students should not be sent to school with the symptoms listed below:
- Fever (100 or above)
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Pain that is not controlled
- Flu symptoms
- Infectious Conjunctivitis (pink eye). This requires a physician's visit.
Students may return to school:
- Fever free for 24 hours
- No vomiting for the last 24 hours
- Infectious Conjunctivitis (pink eye) when antibiotic treatment has been administered for at least 24 hours and symptoms have subsided.
Students with injuries requiring the use of wheelchairs, crutches, splints, braces, or casts require a physician's note and an indication of when they are able to resume regular activities. These students will be restricted from contact sports and other designated activities on the playground.
Due to unexpected illnesses and emergencies, current work, home, and cell phone numbers are important to our school. Please take the time to update any changes in your personal phone numbers and emergency contact numbers.
Think you for helping keep our school healthy and safe.
MEDICINE AT SCHOOL
All prescription and over-the-counter medication requires a physician authorization form signed by the parent and the physician PRIOR to the student beginning his or her medication. A new form must be signed for each new school year. All medications must be in the original container and labeled with the student's name. Students are not allowed to carry ANY medication. Any prescribed medications need to be dispensed from the health office. The only exception is for an inhaler or an epi-pen with the proper physician's form. Cough drops may be carried. A student may be excused from P.E. with a parent note for three days. Anything longer requires a doctor's note.
