Guidelines for Students with Symptoms of Illness

Parent Information

In order to protect the health of all students and staff at school and prevent the spread of illness, the Chart (on the following page) from the TUSD Health Services department is provided to help parents determine when to keep a student with symptoms home from school. If your student has symptoms at school, school personnel will evaluate the student to determine if he/she should remain in school. (California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Public Health 2526).

Please be certain that your child’s Online “Emergency” Card lists at least one adult living in the area who would be willing to assume responsibility for your sick or injured child during school hours. Also, we recommend that you check with local hospitals regarding pre-arranged programs at their locations to care for ill children.

Torrance Unified School District's Health Services has issued forms related to medication for children on the school campus.
