Torrance Elementary Health Office Policies

Your child’s immunizations must be up to date.
Students whose immunizations are incomplete may be excluded from school until their immunization requirements are met.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IF HE OR SHE HAS ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS:

  • Headache that require bed rest
  • Stomach ache that requires bed rest
  • Diarrhea
  • Suspicious rash
  • Fever
  • Vomiting

Your child must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. Children often have a relapses within 24 hours and, therefore, may be contagious.

Your child must go without vomiting for at least 24 hours before returning to school.

MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION FORMS
If your child needs to take medication at school they will need a Medication Authorization Form filled out by his or her doctor for each medication required.
This includes over the counter medication.

WE ARE UNABLE TO GIVE ANY MEDICATION WITHOUT THIS FORM.

BECAUSE SOME OF OUR STUDENTS FOOD ALLERGIES, PLEASE REMIND YOUR CHILD NEVER TO SHARE SNACKS OR LUNCH.
