Health & Emergency Care Procedures

UCSD#1 Has updated procedures for food allergies and health care. More information can be obtained from the school nurse. The main points from the health care procedure include when
a child will be sent home from school including if they have any of the following:

  • A fever of 100 degrees or greater. The student may return to school only after being fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medications).
  • A persistent cough or coughing that significantly affects the students ability to talk, function or remain comfortable.
  • Suspected conjunctivitis. Following the diagnosis of conjunctivitis the student may return to school 24 hours after the first prescribed dose.
  • Persistent diarrhea and/or uncontrolled vomiting. The student may return to school only after being symptom-free for 8 hours.
  • A suspicious, unexplained rash or lesion. The student may return after a health care provider has examined and authorized the student's return to school.
  • Whenever any live pediculi or untreated nits are found. The student may return following appropriate treatment as long as no further live pediculi are found.
  • Students may return to school:
    • With a known diagnosis of strep throat 24 hours after antibiotic treatment.
