Is Your Student too ill for School? 

Illness: When can my student return to school?
  • Fever: If your child has a fever they are required to stay home until they are fever free for at least 24 hours without fever reducing medication (tylenol, motrin, etc).
  • Vomiting and/or Diarrhea: Please keep your student home until they have at least one full day of normal health (no vomiting and/or diarrhea).
  • For Colds and Flu's: If your child must be fever free for at least 24 hours (without fever reducing medications) and the cold/flu symptoms must be resolved or improving to return to school.
  • Lice: We are a "No Nit" school district. Your student must be free of Lice and Nit's to return to school.
  • Communicable Diseases: If your child has a cold, flu, strep throat, pink eye, lice, or any other communicable illness please inform the school secretary when you call in your child's absence.


Medications at School
  • All medications given at school require a Student Medication Form signed by a medical provider and a parent/guardian.  Per the California Education Code, This applies to Over The Counter (OTC) medications as well.  If a medical provider gives you a signed order, we can accept that and a Student Medication Form signed by the parent/guardian. 
  • Medications given at school need to be provided in the original packaging with your student's name on them.  If they are prescriptions, they need to have the pharmacy label on them with your student's information.  The medication MUST match the label.
