Need Insurance Coverage?
 Did you know that thousands of children in California are without health insurance? Did you know countlessschool hours are lost due to dental pain, vision problems and illnesses that could be prevented or treated?
There are no-cost or low-cost insurance coverage programs available for you and your child.
Youcan give your child a better chance to learn. Our school district has always known what experts are just nowrealizing – that there is a direct link between children’s health and school success.
For more Medi-Cal/Heathly Families information, call toll-free: 1-888-747-1222.ORMedi-Cal/Healthy Families Program:
Each year thousands of children in California miss out on basic medical care becausetheir family cannot afford health coverage. We have information from the California Department of Health Service’s Medi-Cal/Healthy Families Program available in our front office, or call toll free: 1-888-747-1222.
District Health Guidelines
It is important that our children follow good health practices at all times and be kept home when they are ill. A child may not bein school when he or she is experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:* Nausea or vomiting (must remain at home until free of symptoms for 24 hours).* Diarrhea (must remain at home until free of symptoms for 24 hours).* Severe headache.* Continuous coughing or runny nose.* Evidence of a communicable disease such as rash, swelling or unusual sore throat.* Undiagnosed rash (rashes need to be verified by your doctor that they are non-contagious, a doctor’s note isneeded).* Temperature of 100 degrees or higher (must remain at home until he/she has a normal 98.6 degree temperaturefor 24 hours without the use of a fever reducer such as Tylenol).* Conjunctivitis (pink eye).If a student is sent home from school due to illness, the child may not return that day. A doctor’s note for absences over five (5)days is required.Keeping sick kids at home until they recover prevents contagious illness from spreading to other students andmembers of the community.
 
Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep all children and staff healthy.
When Parents Talk Less, Their Children Actually Listen More
!
When your child was younger, he needed you to talk a lot. It’s the way he learned the language that describes the world aroundhim. But now that your child is older, he needs a lot less narration. Yet many parents of elementary schoolers find themselvestalking on and on ... even while their children are listening less and less. Of course you still want to talk with your child abouthis day. You want to have conversations about what he’s reading and thinking. But if you’re like most parents, you’d like tospend less time talking about whether it’s time to feed the pets or why his clothes are still scattered all over his bedroom floor.Here are some tips on how you can make the most of the words you say to your child:* Make infrequent requests. As much as possible, help your child develop a routine for things like homework and daily chores.* Keep the volume down. Your child doesn’t actually
 
hear you any more clearly if you yell.* Keep it short. When you do have to give your child directions, see if you can say it in five words or fewer. So instead of saying, “Jack, I need you to get to the car. Don’t forget your backpack. Do you have your homework?” try saying, “Jack.Homework. Backpack. Car.Source: L.
