Health Office Screenings

The health office screens the following students in the following grades at the beginning of the school year as follows:

Pre- K: Distance vision

Kinders: Complete Vision testing, hearing, height, Weight/BMI, Dental Check

1st - 3rd: Distance Vision, Height, Weight/BMI, Dental Check

Asthma Actions Plans and/or Allergy Action plans

In order for the health office to administer inhalers or Epi pens while at school Asthma Actions Plans and/or Allergy Action plans need to be signed annually at the beginning of the school year by your child’s pediatrician and yourself. If student is old enough they can carry their inhaler with them, however, we still need the signed asthma or allergy action plan in case emergency care is needed.

Please see the link to the left to print out an asthma or allergy action plan to take to your child’s provider.

Picking Up Your Child Up Due to Illness

Please see the link to APS sick day guidelines on the left side of this page.

If you are picking up your child up due to illness from the health office please have your ID available and be ready to sign them out from us. This is an excused absence. We will call you to pick-up your child for any acute illness symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, moderate to severe pain and rash.

Your child can return to school when he or she is well enough to take part in school activities and has had no fever for 24 hours without medication (Tylenol, acetaminophen, Motrin, ibuprofen).
