On the first day of school, your student will be coming home with a "pink sheet". This is our emergency contact form asking you to update your child's records. Please list all contact numbers including names and numbers of those we can call if we are unable to contact you. Please include any of your child's medical conditions and medications they are taking.
It is extremely important that I know of any medical conditions and medications. If this information should change during the school year, contact the Health Office and let me know.
** NEW this year - 2019. All medications prescribed by a Doctor now require a Doctor's note to accompany the medication in a pharmacy labled container/box. If your child needs to take medication during the school day, complete a medication consent form (available in my office) and provide the medication in the original container.
Do not send the medication with your child to school! No medications are allowed on campus with the exception of epi-pens and inhalers. If your child needs to keep an epi-pen and/or inhaler with them, there is a separate form to complete. I always recommend that all medications are kept in the Health Office so they are always accessible during an emergency. The last thing we want to have to do is search the campus looking for a backpack, checking lockers, desks etc. when you really need one of these two medications.
Medications are not stored in the Health Office over the summer break. Any medications not picked up within 2 days after school is dismissed for the summer will be discarded.
Physical Education Excuses
Students requesting to be excused from PE must bring a note signed by their parent to the Nurse. The Nurse will then write an "excused from PE" pass for the student to take to PE. Any request for three or more consecutive PE excuses must be accompanied by a Physician's written order. PE teachers will be informed of the length of excuse, and any accommodations that need to be made for your child. If your child has a health condition that causes him/her to miss PE class frequently, a doctor's note may be requested.
Hearing and Vision
Hearing and Vision Screenings will be done annually for the following student groups: Pre-School, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 3rd Grade, 5th Grade, 7th Grade, all new students registering who have not been previously enrolled within Deer Valley Unified School District and and all students with and IEP in place.
