A message from Mrs. Meredith
Happy New Year!
It is FLU AND ILLNEES SEASON.
Please read these very important rules:
- 1. If your child has a fever of 99.6 or more they must stay home. They may return only if they are fever free- without the help of medication- for 24 hours.
- 2. If your child has thrown up - they must stay home at least 24 hours after the last time they threw up.
- 3. If your child has an illness that requires antibiotics-(ear infection, bronchitis, sinusitis, pink eye, etc.) they must stay home at least 24 hours after the first dose.
These rules are for the safety of your children as well as everyone else in the school.
All students are REQUIRED by California law to be up to date with immunizations or they may NOT be in school.
I need a copy of ALL immunizations given throughout the year.
I don't need flu shot records.
There are still 6 first grade students that have not given me their physical examinations and 1 that is still missing the dental exam. THESE ARE REQUIRED! I have sent out multiple requests and copies of the forms to be filled out by the doctor or dentist. Get them to me immediately!
If your child has new medical illness or diagnosis over the school year, please keep me informed.
Please feel free to visit me at the health office, or call me at 818-707-4224. I'm always happy to answer any questions.
Stay healthy and don't forget to wash your hands!
