Your child’s health is of paramount importance to us. We’re honored to have a school nurse who looks after the physical and mental health of every student on our campus. Let’s work together to stay safe.
Dear Mountain View Families,
Welcome to another great school year! Our top priority is to promote the health and safety of all of our students and staff. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s health, you can contact me at any time.
Here are a few helpful tips you can do to help your child:
1. Ensure your child is getting adequate sleep and set a routine for your child to follow daily.
2. Practice mindful screen time.
3. Promote healthy eating habits.
4. Wash your hands frequently and keep your children home when they are ill.
5. Ensure your child is properly dressed for the season.
6. Pack an extra pair of clothing in your child’s backpack. Regardless of age, accidents happen! Whether they fall in the mud, spill their drink, or have a bathroom accident, having an extra pair of clothing can help get your child back to class in a timely manner.
How do you know if you should keep your child home from school? Please consider keeping your child home if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
Shortness of breath/Difficulty breathing
Fatigue or lack of appetite
Productive coughing. sneezing
Headache, body ache, earache
Your child can return to school when:
Free from a fever (measured temperature of 100.0 F or greater) without the use of medications for at least 24 hours.
Symptoms have been improving for at least 24 hours.
Free from vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours.
