    IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
     
    A student returning to school with sutures (stitches, staples), ace bandage (elastic bandage), casts, splints, crutches, cane, walker, or a wheelchair must have a licensed California health care provider’s written permission to attend school that includes any recommendations and/or restrictions related to physical activity, mobility, and safety. 
     
    The following form must be returned to the nurses office (with your Physician's signature) when your child returns to school:
     

    PROLONGED ILLNESSES
     
     
    A student returning to school following a serious or Prolonged illness, injury, surgery, or other hospitalization (including psychiatric and drug or alcohol inpatient treatment), must have written permission by the health care provider to attend school, including any recommendations regarding physical activity.  An excuse (less than 10 weeks) from a physical education class may be granted to a student who is unable to participate in regular or modified curriculum for a temporary period of time due to illness or injury. A parent's written request for an excuse will be accepted for up to 5 days; thereafter, a written request is needed from the student's health care provider.
     
    School authorities may excuse any student, age 12 year or older, from the school for the purpose of obtaining confidential medical services without the consent of the parent or guardian.
     
    Students are allowed to wear protective gear (hats, sun visors and/or sunglasses) while outdoors at recess, gym, etc. Schools may regulate the type of sun protective clothing/headgear in accordance with California Education Code Section 35183.5. Schools are not required to provide protective materials. Students are also allowed to use sunscreen (over the counter) as an allowable sun protection measure for their outdoor activities while at school.
     
     
     

     
    STUDENT SELF-ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION

    Per the California Education Code, which is enforced by The Los Angeles Unified School District, students may be assisted with medications or can self-carry their own medication such as an asthma inhaler if there is written authorization from the health care provider and parent/guardian. Two forms are available for this: one is for "Self-Administration" and the other is for medication to be stored in the Nurse's Office. All oral medications (such as tablets or pills) must be stored in the Nurse's Office.It is important that we are aware of every student who requires medication and that the proper documents are on file in the Nurse's Office.This is required at the beginning of every school year. We want to keep your child safe. If you have any questions, please contact the Nurse at (310) 917-4887.
