Attention 6th Grade Parents!
Attention 6th Grade Parents!

Attention 6th grade parentsAs of July 1, 2019 the new California immunization requirement states that all students entering 7th grade have two doses of Varicella and a Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap) booster given after 7th birthday, prior to entering 7th grade.   Your incoming 7th grader will not be allowed to start the 2019-20 school year without proof.  Some students may have already got the shot, but have not shown the proof to the Health Office.  Please have your 6th grader present their updated immunization record to the Health Office before the end of this school year. If your student has not received the TDAP yet, please make an appointment NOW to get it.  This way you will prevent your student from being excluded from school in August.  Please call the Health Office if you have any questions…760-966-4921.   

Health News!

Just a few reminders from the Health Office:

In accordance with Board Policy 5142 all ace bandages, braces, splints, casts and crutches must have a note from a medical provider to return to school.  Students with casts and crutches will not be allowed to actively participate in PE activities because of potential danger to the student and others.  Doctor note MUST state:

  1. Date student may return to school
  2. With: brace, crutches, cast, splint or ace bandage
  3. PE restrictions

Students will NOT be allowed to return to school until the Health Office has received this note.  

All incoming 7th-12th grade students must have a Tdap shot on or before their 7th birthday documented on their immunization record.   If your student has not met this requirement they will not be permitted to register or attend next school year. Please check your child's shot record now to determine if they need this booster. 

Many students receive immunizations throughout the year, but do not present the record to the health office.  Please make sure you bring in the record every time your child gets an immunization.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Cindi Donaldson in the Health Office at 760-966-4921.

End of the Year Procedure

Summer is fast approaching and school will be out of session soon.  Just a few reminders from the Health Office:

If your student has medication here at school, please make arrangements to pick up his/her medication before the last day of school.  All medications left after school is out will be DISPOSED

If you have an incoming 7th grader don’t forget to get the TDAP immunization.  A letter was sent to all parents of students who still needed to show proof.  Your student will NOT be allowed to start 7th grade without it.  Make your appointment NOW, since clinics get very busy the week before school starts.

Summer is a prime time for accidents. Be aware of your child’s activities and make sure they have a fun and safe break. 

If you have any questions please call Mrs. Donaldson at 760-966-4921.

Flu Information

Just a reminder to parents in reference to the Oceanside Unified School District’s Health and Safety Guidelines.  Please do not send your child to school if they have a fever, vomiting, diarrhea or have frequent coughing and/or nasal discharge which could interfere with classroom instruction.  Please remember that your child should be vomit and/or fever free for 24 hours without medication.   If you have any questions please feel free to call the Health Office. We are in middle of a severe flu season and we all need to do our best to stay healthy. Thank you!

To prevent the spread of the Flu the CDC recommends:

 

  • Hand Hygiene: Wash your hands thoroughly and often.  
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose and practice other good health habits: A person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, eyes or nose.
  • Clean and disinfect:  Disinfect countertops, sinks, doorknobs, tables and telephones on a regular basis.
  • Respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Wash your hands after.
  • Use Droplet precautions: Flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. Encourage coughing persons to sit at least three feet away from others in common waiting areas.
  • Infected people should stay home for at least 24 hours after fever is gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine. Sick people should limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
