Students who become ill or injured need to report to their teacher to get a pass for the health office. Except in emergency situations, students are not allowed to go to the health office during passing periods without first reporting to the next period teacher to ask for a pass. A health clerk is on duty and/or the district nurse assigned to Los Cerritos is available for consultation.
All prescription drugs and/or over the counter medicines need to be brought to the health office, and left with a written statement from the doctor, as well as a note of authorization from a parent.
CRUTCHES, SLINGS AND CASTS
All students who need to come to school with a cast, sling or crutches must have a doctor's note on file in the health office along with the duration of how long they are to be out of PE. An elevator key will be issued at that time.
If your student has been diagnosed with a concussion, please ask their doctor to complete the Acute Concussion Evaluation Care Plan and then bring it to the Health Office so that we may make any and all accommodations necessary to assist in their recovery. Please feel free to call the Health Clerk with any questions.
