"The awareness that health is dependent upon habits that we control, makes us the first generation in history that to a large extent determines its own destiny." ~ Jimmy Carter
ARIZONA STATE LAW ARS 15-803 states that children must have immunization (shot) information on file at school. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to furnish the school with the month, day and year of each immunization and initiate having the child receive any needed immunization before they are allowed to attend school.
If you are in need of healthcare resources to receive this vaccination please email me using the contact information provided on this page.
Once school is in person medication can be given in the health office if medication is instructed by physician to be given during specific school hours. Daily medication requires physician authorization and parental consent. AS NEEDED medication requires parental consent form to be filled out. Parents can email and request this form also.
It is imperative that you notify the nurse if your child has a medical condition such as diabetes, seizure disorder, asthma, heart disease, and allergies, a physical or mental disability, etc. This information should be placed on the emergency section of the data sheet. This will help the health office better serve your child by developing a care plan and the training necessary to educate your child's teacher and aides on your child's medical needs.
Any student with special medical needs or procedures that are performed at school during school hours will need to have orders completed by the physician prior to attendance at school.
Email me to receive those forms along with care plans that may need to be in place to provide important information regarding students health status and needs for instructors.
Parents are also required to initially train staff working with the student on special medical procedures needed at school prior to the student attending.
If any injury requiring crutches, wheelchair or further medical considerations students must have physicians note requesting crutches and wheelchairs to be used. The health office should always be notified of broken bones to ensure we accommodate appropriately to prevent further injury.
Details regarding how care will be provided in the health office is being thoroughly thought through at this time. The priority of the students and staff health and safety is crucial.
Students should not be sent to school with any symptoms of illness that might be considered contagious. These symptoms may include but not be limited to fever, vomiting, cough, and undiagnosed rash and fatigue. Any student diagnosed with Covid-19 or any other communicable disease must be cleared by physician to return to school.
Please feel free to call the health office when school is back to in person instruction if any condition is questionable to send to school.
