    Illnesses and when to keep your student home

    Here are a few tips to help you keep your children healthy and to minimize illness from spreading at school:

    1. Students with 100 degree or more temperature is considered a fever and will be sent home. The student should remain at home until they are fever free for 24 hours WITHOUT fever reducing medications (Tylenol or Motrin)
    2. Medication at school must be in original container with specific instructions, name of student, physician, name of medication, dose and time. A signed parent consent form must also be signed. Parents MUST bring the medication to school; please do not send medication in your child’s backpack. Non-prescription medications will NOT be administered unless written instructions from a physician and signed parent consent are presented to clinic.
    3. Please inform the clinic of any health problems/concerns so appropriate forms can be completed. School personnel will provide first aid for injuries/illness that occurs at school only. Injuries from home should be taken care of at home.
    4. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide the school with CURRENT phone numbers and emergency contact information. If a parent cannot be reached for seriously ill or injured children, the child will be transported by EMS and JISD does NOT assume any financial responsibility.
    5. Dietary modifications require a special dietary from that must be filled out and signed by a physician. Dietary substitutions for preference, etc. are the responsibility of the parent/guardian. 
    6. When a child does not feel well or has a minor injury he/she must get a clinic pass from their teacher.
