Health Office


firstaidkit4c.gifUnfortunately, Sycamore Elementary does not have a school nurse on site and we do not have facilities to care for sick children.  If your child is ill, please keep him/her home from school.  We do have wonderful district nurses that we can contact in an emergency.

     Please be sure to keep your student's emergency contact numbers current (your work, your pager, grandma & grandpa, etc.).

     Below are some school requirements and guidelines that we hope you will find helpful.

Medication 
at School
 
In order for the office to administer medication (prescription OR over-the-counter) we must have a form signed by the parent and physician with specific instructions.  This form is available in the school office or on our website - Authorization for Any Medication Taken During School Hours
Injury
 
Students returning to school with casts, crutches, wheelchair, stitches, elastic bandages, or slings as a result of an accident or injury must provide a physician’s verification of permission to return to school and may not participate in P.E., noontime activities, recess, or be on the playground before or after school until written release by a physician is received.     This form is available in the school office or on our website- 
Re-admission After Accident/Injury
  Lice
 
If you discover an infestation, please contact the school office immediately.  All information is confidential, however, it is imperative that we inform you of the proper procedures for treatment and for readmission to school.  In recent years lice has become very resistant to customary treatments.  A child must be “nit free” to return to school.  The shampoos will not kill all the nits and the combs will not remove all of them.  Hair must be sectioned off and the nits pulled out with the fingernails.  If this is not done, reinfestation will occur. 
With communication and cooperation we can, hopefully, keep the problem to a minimum.  Thank you for your help.

With Regard to the Following Communicable Diseases,
a student may legally return to school.......

Chicken Pox
 
5 days from onset of rash; or after all lesions are dry. 
Student's must be checked-in through the office.
Scarlet Fever
 
48 hours from the start of effective antibiotic treatment.
Impetigo
 
After treatment by a physician when all areas are treated and covered or dry.
Ringworm
 
When affected areas are treated and covered.
Head Lice
 
After treatment and when hair is free of nits (eggs).
Scabies
 
After adequate treatment by a physician.
Strep Throat
 
24 hours after first doses of prescribed medicine.
Pink Eye
 
Under treatment for 24 hours or no redness/drainage or by doctor's note.
Fifth Disease

7th Grade Immunization Requirement

 vaccine.jpg

A new school immunization law requires all students entering 7th grade in California to be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap.
Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.
