Note from the Nurses!!
It is the time of year that we see an increase of illness coming into the school!
So, let’s review the West Central Valley School Health Policy!
FEVER: Students must be fever free (without medication) for 24 hours before returning to school.
VOMITING: Students must not have vomited for 24 hours before returning to school.
PINK EYE: Students can return to school once prescription eye drops have been started.
STREP THROAT: Student’s must have an antibiotic for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
COUGH/COLD: Students can remain at school with mild cough/cold symptoms. If the cough is continual, or becoming a distraction in class, the nurse will be consulted. If your child is going to require multiple cough drops throughout the day, please send them to school with your student. Your student’s classroom teacher can keep them on their desk.
THE WEATHER IS CHANGING!
We all know that in Iowa we can see sunshine, tornados and snow in the same day!!
Please remember to send warm coats, hats, gloves, shoes, etc. with your child every day! If you need assistance getting warm weather gear for your child, please contact your school nurse! There are programs/people who can help!!!
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact the school nurses!
