The Health Office is staffed by Lorena Paz (805-385-1548 ext 5402) who is certified in First Aid and trained in CPR. She assists with first aid or illness situations occurring at school, but is not licensed or trained in diagnosis. We trust that you will understand the need for the following standards:
1. Students should not be sent to school if they have any of the following symptoms:
- Sore throat, severe cough, earache, colored (green or yellow) nasal discharge
- Undiagnosed rash
- Nausea/vomiting, diarrhea
- Temperature of 100 degrees or more
2. Medications at school:
- Medications should be given at home whenever possible. Ask if a prescribed medication can be given after school rather than during school.
- If medications (prescription or over-the-counter) must be given at school, they will be accepted only after an Authorization for Medication (Spanish) form is completed by the parent and physician (and re-submitted each year as needed).
3. If your child needs to be excused from Physical Education activity, he/she must have a written letter from the parent stating the reason for child must be out. Any P. E. excuse longer than 3 days requires a doctor's note. No verbal requestsare accepted.
