Concussions  If there is any possibility that your student has had a head injury/concussion, please make sure that your student is evaluated as soon as possible by a physician experienced in evaluating and treating concussion. Typically, that is your student’s primary care doctor/pediatrician. At Kaiser, concussions are typically treated through the Minor Injury Clinic. Here is the concussion packet families need if their student has a concussion, and here are some very informative podcasts from CLF.

Trauma-Informed? Agencies and organizations are becoming educated and trained about the concept of being Trauma-Informed. Here is a short article on cultivating Trauma-Informed Parenting. 

COVID  Please remain alert to COVID symptoms, continue to report COVID+ cases to us (especially Attendance) and keep your students home when they are ill. Most students are now eligible to get Vaccine boosters – PLEASE DO!!!  Our community is working hard to stay healthy and the high vaccination rate and observance of health department guidelines helps keep students in school learning. If you haven’t yet, please submit your students’ COVID vaccine records. Our District and Administration will be updating us with MASKguidelines.

COVID Isolation, Quarantines and Test Kits The current guidelines for return to school after COVID illness require a negative COVID test (if returning before 10 days).  If your student is testing in the School Nurse Office, please make sure they register with Primary Health. School sites do NOT have more test kits to distribute. Please see Principal Shawn’s COVID FAQs for more details. We continue to update policy based on the County Health Department guidance.

Make sure you always have your proof of vaccination! Try this site- iPhone users- you can now put your vaccinationrecord in your Apple Health app (and Apple Wallet).
