From the Health Office!!

Our goal is to provide the best medical services for your child while they are at school but we need your help to make that possible. Here are a few health rules that families should be aware of while attending Shining Stars.

Immunization

Immunizations are a unique concern at Shining Stars due to the age of the students. Most children need shots at three, four, and five years of age which makes preschool a busy time for immunizations. The health office is required to verify all students are in compliance with New Mexico and RRPSE Immunization polices. This means student’s immunization are copied and tracked for needed updates. Families can help through ensuring their child receives immunizations on time and provides a copy to the health office.

Illness Attendance Policy

 

Children may not attend school if they have had the following symptoms in the last 24 hours. This helps keep staff and other students safe and healthy:

*Elevated temperature of 100 degrees or greater

*Vomiting, nausea, or severe abdominal pain

*Diarrhea

*significant injury

*symptoms not responding to treatment

Medication

All medication is dispensed according to RRPS policy and procedures. This policy is strictly enforced and helps ensure the health of all students on campus.

 *Prescription medications will be dispensed in the health office when accompanied by a complete Medication Authorization Form and the medication is in its original pharmacy labeled container.

*Over the counter (Store Bought) medication will be accompanied in an original sealed container accompanied by a completed “Over the counter” medication form.

As a reminder, please keep the school and health office informed of your child’s health, especially for new conditions or changes to current health problems. This allows us to provide the most up-to-date care possible.
