HEALTH/SOCIAL SERVICES

 

EMERGENCY CARDS

Please turn these in as soon as possible.  Health conditions marked on the card will be shared with appropriate staff.  If you do not want this information on the health list, please notify the school nurse.  Please keep health information and emergency contacts current.  Sick or injured students are released only to parents or people listed as emergency contacts on the Emergency Card. 

 

MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS

Students, if you have an appointment or need to be excused during the school day, you need to bring a note to the attendance office before school from your parent or guardian explaining the reason for the request.  You will then be given an off-campus pass.  Parents:  For your child’s safety, it is district policy that students may not walk home or to appointments during school hours.  Please make arrangements for someone (who is on emergency card) to pick up your student.

 

ILLNESS

Students, if an illness or injury occurs after you arrive at school, you should report to your teacher, and then to the school nurse or attendance office.  Your parent may be called while you are in the office. Students, if you are infected with any contagious disease, you may not come to school.  It will be up to the school nurse, your doctor, and your parents/guardians to determine when you may return to school.

 

MEDICATION

Please administer medication before or after school hours if at all possible.  When this is not possible, a signed release form from the parent and the doctor must be on file at the school by California law (forms are available from the school nurse).  All medication must be kept in the office in their original containers.  The school does not supply any medication, including aspirin or cough drops, for students.  Students may carry inhalers and epi-pens with a consent form signed by the parent and doctor.  Do not leave an inhaler or epi-pen at home.  See the nurse to get the forms that must be signed.  Any other medication must be kept in the nurse’s office with a consent signed by the doctor and parent.  Parents must bring the medication to school as the school does not provide it.  This includes Tylenol, Advil, aspirin, cough medicine, etc.  Students may not carry medication on them or provide any medication to other students.
