About Me

 

 
Nurse's Corner
 

San Jacinto Elementary would like to encourage you to send your child to school daily. In order for students to perform at their best, they should be well rested, eat balanced meals, and practice safe health habits such as:

 

  • Washing your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water
  • Wearing a mask when out in public
  • Practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from others that are not immediate family members

 

We work diligently to keep all students safe and healthy during the school day. During the current Covid-19 pandemic we are taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of all our students and staff. We are asking parents to help us prevent the spread of any infection or illness amongst our students and staff, by please keeping your child home if they have any of the following symptoms:

 

  • Temperature of 100 degrees or above within the past 24 hours
  • Diarrhea, nausea and/or vomiting more than once within the past 24 hours Cough (continuous or worsening)
  • Sore Throat
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing (Non-asthma related)
  • Headache
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Muscle aches
  • Red eye with drainage
  • Ringworm on the scalp
  • Intense itching with open lesions or signs of secondary infection
  • Open lesions that are draining
  • Undetermined rash

 

Students with any of the symptoms listed in yellow, will not be able to return to school until they have met all the following criteria:

 

  • 24 hours have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);
  • The individual has improvement in respiratory symptoms (cough, nasal drainage, shortness of breath);
  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

 

***Parents who wish to have their child return to school sooner than 10 days, must provide a physician’s note stating their child is safe to return to school with an alternative diagnosis, or provide a lab result sheet with a negative Covid-19 test.***

 

San Jacinto Elementary understands that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused difficult times amongst our community. The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation of the new health requirements to ensure that we all remain healthy and safe.
