If your student appears to be ill in the morning before school, please have him/her remain at home. In general, students will be sent home from school if they have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or more, if they are experiencing vomiting or diarrhea, or if they have symptoms of a suspected communicable illness or condition. If your student is sent home from school, please keep in mind that he/she should not return to school until he/she has maintained a 98.6 degree (normal) temperature for 24 hours without being given medication for fever reduction (such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc.). The student should have experienced no vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school. If parents, guardians or emergency contacts are called to pick up a student due to illness at school, it is expected that your student will be picked up as requested within one (1) hour of notification.
AZACS is a Peanut Free environment. No peanut products are permitted on campus. Please do not send students to school with any peanut related products. In addition, all students must have an updated Student Allergy List on file each year listing all diagnosed allergies. Families are encouraged to inform the School Nurse of additional allergies, if changes occur throughout the year, so that additional precautions can be taken in specific classrooms as well as common areas.
Special Medical Needs:
Our goal at AZACS is to provide each student with the maximum learning opportunities within a minimally restrictive environment. All medical conditions that may impair your student's ability to perform in class must be reported to the school nurse. This information will help the nurse to improve your student's ability to perform in the classroom environment.
Ongoing communication between parents, students, and staff is crucial to student success. It is vitally important that all personnel coming into contact with a student are aware of any accommodations that a student may need. The school nurse's role is to coordinate the care between home and school. Please contact your campus’ school nurse for assistance.
Student Health Care Plans:
AZACS requires that all students who have a specific health condition must have an Action Health Care Plan on file in the Health Office. This Action Plan needs to be updated yearly.
