Your child will enjoy school and be better able to learn if he/she is well. It is important to protect the health of students from risk posed by infectious diseases that are transmitted within the school setting. Some serious health conditions can cause danger to the safety and health of students. If your child becomes seriously ill, runs a high fever, or you are concerned, please contact your doctor.
Our health office is available to students who become ill or injured while at school. The health clerk is here on a part-time basis and is not a registered nurse. If your student is ill in the morning, please keep him/her home. The school does not have personnel to care for sick students. Students will not be penalized for missing tests due to illness and are allowed to make up any work they miss due to illness.
Please keep your child home
if he/she has any of the following:
A runny nose when the mucus is thick and green/yellow and accompanied by a fever
Severe congestion that interferes with breathing or if wheezing.
A rash of unknown origin or contagious rash requires a certificate from a physician stating that the student may return to school.
A fever over 100 degrees Students must be fever free for 24 hours without the aid of medication prior to returning to school.
Vomiting Students must be vomit free for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
Lice - DUSD has a no nit (head lice eggs) policy.
It is our goal to follow safe health practices at school in compliance with California Education Codes (48210-48214) to ensure optimal health for all students and staff.
