Just a few reminders concerning our student medical policies here at MCA:
Please be sure to keep your phone number and emergency contact information up-to-date so we can reach you in the event of an illness or injury at school.
Please send in a copy of any updated immunizations that your child may have received.
Please do not send your child to school if he or she is sick. It is noble to have a good attendance record, but not so noble if you are spreading illness to others.
When to keep your child home:
- Fever of 100 ⁰F or greater AND students must be fever free for 24hours without fever reducing medication before returning to school.
- Vomiting and Diarrhea
- Severe Cough or Cold
- Flu-like Symptoms
- Other communicable or contagious illnesses (ex. Pink eye, head lice, etc.)
Please be sure all medications brought into the school are brought by an adult and given to the school nurse. Medication needs to be in correct bottle with proper labeling.
We encourage all students to bring their own water bottle to school.
I look forward to seeing all of you this year. At MCA we love our students! Let’s stay health so we can and ENJOY and GROW a STRONG MCA today and always.
