HEALTH OFFICE

 

HEALTH

If a student is not feeling well during school hours they can visit the Health Office.  Students can either rest for a few minutes or may be sent home by the Health Clerk.  If a student demonstrates any symptoms of a fever, diarrhea, pink eye, lice, or vomiting, a parent will be notified.  The Health Office contact number is 626-441-5030 ext. 3903.

 

MEDICATION

During school hours parents are asked to complete an ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION DURING SCHOOL HOURS form for all students that will be taking medication during school hours.  The form is available in the Health Office.  Medication must be in an original prescription container and kept in the Health Office.  Over-the-counter medication must also be checked into the Health Office and should only be brought to school with written permission from a doctor.

 

CRUTCHES

The CRUTCH RELEASE FORM is required to verify that the student has been instructed in proper crutch usage.

Students returning to school with crutches, casts, or orthopedic devices require a written release from the attending physician.  The form should also indicate any limitations for PE.

Dropping off items for students:
We have 2 black racks inside the office for forgotten items that students need like lunches, homework, PE Clothes, instruments, etc.
 
PLEASE NOTE OUR POLICY:  We do not disrupt classroom time to call out students to pick up these items.  Students have been directed to check regularly for items on these racks if they have forgotten anything at home or in their car, or if a lunch is being dropped off for them. 
Policy on Messages for Students:  We do not give students messages.  If there is an emergency and you need to speak to your child, your student will be called out of class to return your call.
We have 2 locations for lost and found.  
1) Outside office (inside campus): Clothes, backpacks, misc large items.
2) Inside Office (inside closed cabinet): this is for smaller items like glasses, keys, phones, jewelry, wallets, misc small items.
 
Items are donated to homeless shelters on skid row various times throughout the year.  Students are notified via morning announcements and daily bulletin at least 1 week before the items are donated.  These dates usually fall just before holidays or if the racks are overflowing with items.
NOTE:  Our PE teachers also have a lost and found area in the gym for items left in the gym or on the fields.
