I hope your child had a relaxing summer and is looking forward to a great school year. School attendance is important for your child to be successful, but there are times when you should keep your child home. Keeping your child at home when ill allows them to get better and prevents others from becoming ill. Some guidelines to follow for keeping your child home are:
1. Vomiting or diarrhea during the night
2. Severe cold symptoms, toothache, persistent headache,earache, or persistent cough
3. Crusted eyes or red and draining eyes
4. Temperature of 100 degrees or above (without fever reducing medications)
5. Visible rash with an unknown cause
6. Severe pain in any part of his/her body
Written parental consents are required for all medications administered during school hours. Written doctor orders and parental consents are required for prescription medications administered during school hours. Please provide all medications for school in their original manufacturer or pharmacy containers.
In order to ensure the health, safety and well-being of your child, it is important for the school nurse to have up to date health information about your child. Please inform your child’s teacher(s) of any medical concerns that may affect your child during the school day.
A written report from a medical provider showing proof of immunizations is required for students who need immunizations to remain in school (grade 7 students need Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines).
Please contact the school nurse for questions or concerns
at email@example.com or 342-4906. Thank you for your cooperation!
