Our goal in the SY Jackson Health Office is to minimize the amount of school your child misses due to illness, chronic conditions such as diabetes or asthma, or injury. 

A few things to remember...

  • We will call or send a note home with your student every time your child visits our office. 
  • If your child is sick, please keep them home until they have been fever free for 24 hours without medication.
  • Notify us if your child needs to take any medication while at school. This includes inhalers, Epi-Pens, ibuprofen, etc.
  • We will ask you to pick up your child if they have a fever, are actively vomiting or if they have diarrhea.
