Medication / immunizations / communicable diseases
School personnel are not permitted to administer any medication to students without written orders from a physician. This applies to medications for asthma, bee stings, etc. which may be needed only in case of emergency. For long-term medication to be dispensed at school, a specific form, available in the office, must be filled out and signed by both the parent and the doctor. All prescribed medications must be sent in the prescription bottle and must be kept in the office.
The State of California now requires that all school children have up-to-date inoculations for DPT, Hep B, Polio, and MMR in order to attend class.
If your child has any communicable disease, such as H1N1 flu, lice, fifth disease (slap-cheek), chicken pox, measles, etc., please notify the school office at once. A notice will be sent home to parents of other children in the class/grade level alerting them that their child has been exposed. When your child returns to school, it is necessary to send a note from your family physician that your child is no longer contagious.
The school must be notified if your child has head lice. A notification will be sent to parents of other children in the class/grade level alerting them that their child has been exposed. Please Note: Students must be treated and checked at the office upon return to school to insure students are LICE AND NIT free. If nits (dead or alive) are detected, the student will be sent back home to have the nits removed.
