Student Health

The health needs of our students are amongst one of our top priorities as in ensures not only their well being but also a smooth functioning of our school. Scitech requires that all out students Emergency Health and Accident Form on file. Also, all medication that will be given at school will require parents/guardians and the child’s physician must complete health forms available from the school office. Please contact the school regarding any health or medication related questions.

Our student nurse is available through out school hours for any emergencies or accidents as well as to attend to students with communicable disease so as to ensure the safety of other children.

Illness Guidelines for School:

When should a child stay home from school? The following General Guidelines are intended to help with this decision. Keep the student home:

  • If he/she has had a temperature of 100 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication).
  • If he/she has vomited 2 or more times in the past 24 hours.
  • If he/she has diarrhea, an increased number of stools compared to normal, or has stools that are loose, and he/she needs to use the bathroom frequently.
  • If he/she has any rash for which the cause is unknown. Check with your doctor before sending them to school.
  • If he/she has symptoms (fatigue, cough, headache, etc.) that prevents him/her from participating in class.

Call the school daily to report the illness. If the student must take medication at school, annual written permission from a doctor and parent is required. Notify the school of any changes in your work, home, or cell phone numbers so the school can call you if your child becomes ill. Refer to the Specific Disease Exclusion for Schools document for condition specific information.
