Medication Authorization for 2019 – 2020

Medication dispensed at school needs a medication authorization form completed by physician and signed by parent. The form has to be dated after June 1, 2018 to be applied for the 2018-2019 school year. The format of the form has been changed and the health diagnosis of student’s condition requiring medication is now being included from the physician on the form. Please make arrangements to get the authorizations completed. The form can also be picked up from the front office.

Healthy Student – Healthy School

A fever per EGUSD protocol is a temperature = or > than 100 degrees (F). If your student has been vomiting – they must stay home for 24 hours after vomiting and be fever free before returning to school.

Itchy – Itchy Lice

The Elk Grove Unified School District has a “NO LIVE HEAD LICE” policy. This means when a student is found to have live head lice, the parent is notified. The student is sent home from school. The parent is instructed to treat their student for lice before returning to school.
Readmission is contingent on the student passing a head lice re-screening.
