       Below you will find some important information from the District's Nursing Office.  New updates and forms will be added as they become  available.


 Announcements:

 The following criteria should be used to determine if a child is well enough for school: 
      - A student will be sent home or should remain at home with a temperature over 99.4 with symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, headache, sore  throat, or rash or 100.4 temperature with no symptoms.  
      -  Communicable diseases such as pink eye, scabies, ringworm, and influenza need to return to school with a note from the health care provided  clearing them for attendance.  
      - Students need to be fever free as well as free of vomiting or diarrhea symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school.  
      -  Students who require dismissal from school due to illness must be dismissed to a parent or emergency contact on the child's emergency card.
      - If a medical emergency occurs and a parent or emergency contact cannot be located, 911 will be contacted and the student transported to the  hospital listed on the emergency card (if possible) or the closest emergency room.  
      - If a physician's note is required for absence by the attendance office, sending an ill student into school to be sent home by the nurse does not  eliminate the need for a physicians note.
