WELCOME TO OUR HEALTH ROOM!
We love taking care of your children! Whether it's a skinned knee, a sore throat or a stomach ache, we are here to help your child feel better. Our goal is to care for our students and get them back to class.
If a student is too ill to stay at school (fever, vomiting etc.) their parents will be called to pick them up. We ask that students who are ill be picked up within 45 minutes.
STUDENTS WITH FLU/COVID-19 SYMPTOMS:
- Students may return to school within 24 hours if symptoms resolve without fever-reducing medication.
- A COVID-19 test is taken on day 5 or later and is negative.
- If unable or unwilling to test on day 5, or the test is positive, continue to isolate through day 10 from the date of the first positive test.
STUDENTS WHO TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19:
- Students who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least five days after testing positive.
- Isolation may end if there are no COVID-19 symptoms AND a COVID-19 test taken on or after Day 5 is negative. Parents must email a photo of the negative test to the Health Room.
- If the test is positive on Day 5, students must isolate for ten days from the date they tested positive and may return to school on Day 11.
- Immediately notify the Health Room if your child tests positive for COVID-19.

Medical exemptions to immunizations can only be issued through the California Registry Medical Exemption website (CAIR-ME) by physicians licensed in California. Parents can no longer request medical exemptions from their physician. All medical exemptions obtained through the CAIR-ME Registry must be submitted to the Health Room before a student can begin school.
The medical exemption law also states that 7th grade students who have had the chickenpox disease and have not received the Varicella vaccines (2 vaccines are required), will be required to obtain a medical exemption through the CAIR-ME Registry.
