4/24/2017- Vomiting, fever, headache and diarrhea symptoms and report cases of Norovirus are being seen in the Ocotillo area. Please keep this in mind before sending your child to school. I am sending home more than the usual amounts of students complaining of stomachaches or vomiting.
The end of the school year is quickly approaching. All medication and supplies in the health office will need to be picked up by May 31 at 3:30 pm or it will be discarded.
Reminder to students that will be in 6th grade for the 2017/2018 school year- if your child is 11 years old by July 24, 2017 they will need proof of a Tdap and Meningococcal immunization in order to attend school. Sixth grade students that are 10 years old will need proof of the immmunizations within 10 days after turning 11 years old. (Please note that the Meningococcal vaccine formula can not be administered until your child is 11 years old). Click here for the immunization policy
I have already notified parents if your child's Epipen at school is on the recall list.
Head lice in school-aged children is a continuous concern. One must assume their is always lice present in the community and school. It is recommended that parents screen their child for head lice on a weekly basis in a well lit room. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a great website with illustrations and information to help assist in identifying lice. Click here for the CDC link for head lice
