Greetings from the Valley View Nurse’s Office! The nurses here at ‘Valley View Elementary’, strive to promote a safe and healthy environment for all students and staff. You can help by following these guidelines to help prevent the spread of illness and infection at Valley View.
Children should not come to school:
- With a fever (temperature over 100). Children should be fever free for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medication) before returning to school
- With vomiting or severe diarrhea. They may return to school after 12 hours with no symptoms.
- With a persistent cough that interferes with their ability to learn.
- With known chicken pox, ringworm or impetigo, until released by a physician for school attendance (please call with specific questions).
- Children with head lice must be treated and checked by the school nurse upon returning to school.
- With irritated, red, itchy eyes with mucus discharge (crusting on lashes).
- With unusual rash, or rash associated with a fever. Children who develop a fever (over 100.0) at school will be sent home promptly.
Reminder for all parents—Gently used, outgrown clothes and shoes can be donated to Valley View for use throughout the school year. Accidents happen, milk gets spilled or a fall in the mud causes students to need a change of clothes. New packs of underwear is also an item that is used regularly. Thanks for considering!
Routine annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and older who do not have contraindications. The best place to start is to consult your family physician about how you can receive the flu vaccine or visit www.flu.gov for more information. Vaccination optimally should occur before onset of influenza activity in the community. Vaccination should be offered as long as influenza viruses are circulating. >>>>>NOW is a perfect time to get the flu vaccine!>>>>>>
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the nurse’s office at 885-1220 ext 4 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Attention Parents: With the sunny weather and outside activities approaching please note the following message to keep our students Sun Safe. We encourage the application of sunscreen at home in the morning before the school day when extended outdoor activities are scheduled. We also encourage and allow sun protective clothing including hats. The PA School Code was recently amended to include sun protection measures for students. It now allows for the use of a non-aerosol topical sunscreen product by students in school. The sunscreen must be FDA approved. The parent/guardian must submit two forms which can be found below. The first form is for the parent/guardian to submit allowing the student to use the topical sunscreen. The second form is for the student to submit stating that they are aware of the proper use and safety precautions of the product and will handle it appropriately. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
