MEDICAL RULES AND PROCEDURES
• A student who is feeling ill should visit the school supervisor who will evaluate the student and will notify the principal in case the student needs to go home. Parents are requested to pick up their child from the school after obtaining a gate pass from the principal’s office.
• Children diagnosed with contagious illnesses should not return to school without the written consent of a licensed physician. The following are some general guidelines for keeping your child out of school:
- High fever.
- Nausea, vomiting, or severe abdominal cramps.
- Marked drowsiness or fatigue.
- Acute cold, sore throat, or persistent cough.
- Eyes that are red, inflamed or have a discharge.
- Headache or earache.
- Head lice or any skin lesions unless protected and diagnosed as non- contagious.
- Other symptoms suggestive of acute illness.
• Upon registration at the beginning of the school year, the school should be informed of students with chronic illnesses, such as asthma, epilepsy, and migraine. In the case in which a student has to take doses of medication during school hours, the parents must provide the school supervisor with a doctor’s prescription describing the dosage of those medications. Medications should not be kept in classrooms or offices, only in with the Supervisor.
• Parents are responsible to update the school in case of any change in contact information.
