Welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year!!


My how the summer just flew by!! It's going to be a great year here at Pioneer! I'm so excited to be back and see so many familiar faces and also to get to see some new ones! So if you're new.....please stop in and say HI!! 


Just a few reminders on health office policies and guidelines:


Illnesses

Please keep your child home from school if he/she has any diarrhea, vomiting, rash, fever, severe cough, or a contagious illness, such as chickenpox, measles, strep throat, pink eye, or lice.


If your child develops any of the following symptoms, vomiting, 2 bouts of diarrhea, possible pink eye, rash, or fever of 101 degrees and higher, they will need to be picked up from school. If you are unable to pick up your child, someone from your list of emergency contacts will need to pick them up.


Students sent home with diarrhea, fever, or vomiting, are not permitted to return to school the following day as they need to be symptom free for 24 hours. This includes being fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours.


Medications

Please notify the school nurse if your child requires any medication for a medical condition, such as diabetes, seizure disorder, asthma, allergies, or any other physical/emotional/mental condition. Per district policy, all medication must be dropped off in the health office by a parent or another adult and appropriate paperwork completed by the parent, medical provider, or both. Medication MAY NOT be brought into school by the student.


Please follow link below for detailed information regarding district medication policy:

Immunizations

Arizona State Law states that all children must have up to date immunization records on file prior to the start of the school year.


School immunization requirements can be found at: Immunizations - Gilbert Public School District


Tdap (Tetanus booster) and Meningococcal vaccinations are due for all students 11 years old and entering the 6th grade.



Crutches, Wheelchairs, and Assistive Walking Devices

Short-term use of crutches, wheelchairs, or other assistive devices require the parent to notify the health office. A note from the parent can excuse a student from PE or other strenuous activities for up to 3 days.  If student needs to be excused from PE or other strenuous activities for longer than 3 days a Doctor's note will need to be provided to the health office.  Please note that this is a new policy effective this school year.


Feel free to contact the health office for any concerns or questions. Your student’s health and safety is our top priority!
