HEALTH OFFICE INFORMATION:
Students are not permitted to possess or administer medication by themselves. All medication, including aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. must be brought into the health office by an adult with written verification from the student's physician as to the name of the medication, the proper dosage and the means by which it is to be administered. ALL medication must be kept and administered in the Health Office.
Crutches, Casts and Braces
If your child needs to use crutches, or to wear a cast or brace, please have a doctor's note giving permission to attend school. District policy requires them to stay in the office or the library during recess and lunch. They may NOT be on the playground.
Every student must have a current emergency card on file at school. This card contains names, phone numbers and other important information needed in case of an emergency at school. Older siblings may only pick up younger students if their name is listed on the card.
Illness or Injury at School
If a child becomes ill at school, parents will be notified immediately. If parents cannot be reached, another adult designated on the student's emergency card will be asked to pick up the child.
Accidents which occur at school are not the responsibility of the school. Insurance forms are available for your convenience at the beginning of the year.
Mrs. Skillin, the Chaparral Health Clerk, is happy to assist you with any questions you may have regarding health issues and your child. You can reach her at (818) 591-2428 ext. 223.
