SCHOOL HEALTH PROCEDURES

Health Attendant, Donna Folberg, (858) 484-0981 ext 3203, dfolberg@powayusd.com

STUDENT HEALTH: Canyon View has a Health Attendant to take care of first aid and emergencies. In case of student illness at school, the health attendant will notify parents or the emergency contact listed on the enrollment form. No registered nursing services are provided at the school on a daily basis.

KEEPING EVERYONE HEALTHY:  Please remember that PUSD Guidelines state that your child must be fever- and vomit-free for 24 hours before returning to school. Students with Upper Respiratory Infections common symptoms: persistent nasal discharge that is purulent or discolored, productive cough, excessive coughing or appears to be too ill or uncomfortable to adequately function in classroom setting should stay home until no symptoms for 24 hours or a written medical release is obtained.
All NEW students, Kindergarten and 1st graders are all required by state law to have on file an Oral Health Assessment and Physical/up to date immunizations for entrance to a California Public School. If you have any questions about these forms please feel free to call me. I will get you the information and assist in whatever I can.

When a child looses a tooth it is very scary for them and they look forward to coming to the health office to get a ziploc bag for their tooth.  There is also a special TOOTH FAIRY HOTLINE for San Diego County residents only. Your child may talk to the Tooth Fairy at (619)275-7195.

Parents can protect their infants and children by checking with their health care provider to make sure that all family members’ immunizations are up to date. For the most recent local information or local immunization clinics please go to the County of San Diego Public Health Department’s Immunization website at www.sdiz.org

MEDICATION: Medication at school MUST have a Doctor Signature. Please do not send your child to school with medication. If they need to receive anything including over the counter medications it is required by law to have doctor and parent signed Authorization to Administer Medication. This ihealthsafety/03 - H-26 Authorization for Medication.pdfs for the safety of the students. For any questions regarding this policy please call me to answer your questions.
