Health office

An LVN and/or a Health Assistant are in the health office everyday from 8:25 a.m. until 3:25 p.m.  They are trained in first aid and CPR. Each quadrant of our disttrict has a registered nurse on call if necessary. Please do not send your child to school if they are sick or have a fever.  Students must be fever free for 24 hours without medication. 

Accidents:  We take great care to see that Arlington School is a safe place for students and staff. When accidents occur, they must be reported immediately to the adult in charge. It is important that parents complete the emergency information on Power School and keep all emergency contacts up to date.

Guidelines for Students with symptoms of illness click here- In order to protect the health of all students and staff at school and prevent the spread of illness, the Chart from the 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” information 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.

Medication at School:  According to the California 5tate Education Code, definite procedures must be followed with regard to taking medication at school.  During a regular school day, any pupil required to take medication prescribed for him by a physician must receive: 1. A written statement from the physician stating the method, amount and time by which medication is to be taken.  2. A written statement from the parent or guardian of the pupil granting their permission that the physician's orders be carried out.  No medication is to be kept in the classroom. It is the student's responsibility to. come to the office to take the prescribed medication at designated times.  The parent or guardian can bring a prescribed medication to the school and give it to their child directly. These policies are for the protection of all school children.
