Balboa Academy School Clinic

Keep our School & your Family Healthy

Dear Parents:

Over the past week, we have received many students in the clinic who are sick. We encourage you to keep your child home if they are ill with a fever, vomiting, cough or sore throat and any of these other symptoms:

  • Runny nose
  • Body aches
  • Headaches
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea

It is very important that we keep our other students and staff healthy. Your child’s teacher will take that into consideration when they return to school.

If your student comes to school sick or starts to have any of these symptoms while at school, you will be called to pick them up.

In addition, it is recommended by the CDC that any person with fever should stay home for a full 24 hours after the fever is gone without the use of fever reducing medications.

Thank you for your support,

Stephanie Nellis-Hayes, RN School Nurse
