Health

It is great to see all the familiar and new faces of Kaleidoscope.  As the school nurse, it is my priority to keep all our children healthy and safe.  You can help!

  • Communicate with the nurse about any illness your child has that may be contagious.
  • Keep your child home from school when they are vomiting,  have diarrhea, or a fever.
  • Do not medicate a child for a fever and then send them to school. A child must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Encourage your child to wash hands with soap and water frequently.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Do not share water bottles, especially while sick.

Here’s a friendly reminder to check  your child’s head for lice every Sunday before returning to school.   Visit the Health section of our school’s website for the link to the district’s Lice Procedures.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call or email me at 283-0804 and casp@kpbsd.k12.ak.us.
