Nurse Services Department
- Make sure to complete the daily health screen at home BEFORE sending your student to school. If he/she has any symptoms, please keep your student home and notify the school.
- Wash your hands often
- Wear a mask/face covering
- Cover your coughs and sneezes
- Keep 6 feet of space between you and others
- Under the California School Immunization Law (California Health and Safety Code, Sections 120325-120375), children are required to receive certain immunizations in order to attend public and private elementary and secondary schools, child care centers, family day care homes, nursery schools, day nurseries and developmental centers.
While evidence of these vaccinations are required for school, we also appreciate that given the current COVID-19 situation, access to your healthcare provider may be difficult and/or delayed. We encourage you to contact your health provider now to see about scheduling an appointment. If you are not able to get your child’s immunizations before school starts, we will accept proof of an upcoming appointment date as an alternative.
We know these are difficult times and we want to work with you and support you as best we can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your school's health clerk with any questions or concerns or if you need help making an appointment.

What is an IHCP?
IHCP stands for individualized health care plan. It is a document that is created to support your student and their health in the educational environment.
Who should have one?
Students with mild to severe health care needs and require frequent nursing services at school, or students who have health conditions that have the potential to result in a medical emergency. Each IHCP is individualized to meet the needs of the student.
What is the purpose of an IHCP?
The IHCP helps assure consistent and safe health care for the student, and sets procedural guidelines that provide specific directions about what to do in a particular emergency. IHCPs are provided to your student’s teachers each school year.
Conditions that merit an IHCP:
Seizures, Asthma, Diabetes, Irritable bowel syndrome (ex: Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis), Heart related issues, Severe Allergic Reactions (ex: bee stings, food allergies), History of fainting, Bleeding, Blood issues, Concussions.
If you think your student needs to have an IHCP, please contact the school nurse for more information.
