From the Health Office

Dear Parents,

In order to promote a healthy school environment for all students, the Health Office would like to ask for your assistance.

To prevent the spread of germs, please keep any ill child at home until they are symptom free without medication for 24 hours. This includes fevers, vomiting, diarrhea, productive coughs, colored nasal discharge, or unknown rash.

Please notify the Health Office if your child is diagnosed with a strep infection or chicken pox. There are members of our school community that would need to consult with their physicians if exposed to these illnesses. Modeling hand washing and covering our mouths when coughing or sneezing are good techniques all adults can perform to assist our children in staying healthy.

Thank you for your assistance. Feel free to contact the Health Office staff with questions.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Cooke, RN - School Nurse 
Jessica Mahoney - Health Technician, Phone - Health Office at Poinsettia: (805) 289-7971 x 1007
