Hello! My name is Megan Spaziani and I'm very excited to have joined the Cedar Point team!

A few reminders for the 2018-2019 school year...


Please keep your child home if:

1. Fever of 100ºF and over – exclude until student has been fever-free for at least 24 hours.

2. Conjunctivitis (pink eye), strep infections, ringworm, and impetigo are all infections and must be treated with medication for a minimum of 24 hours before returning to school. Please do not allow affected students back before this time so that other students are not infected unnecessarily.

3. Rash of unknown origin (especially if accompanied by a fever).

4. Head injury.

5. Severe coughing or difficulty breathing.

6. Colds – a child with thick or constant nasal discharge should remain home.

7. Diarrhea or vomiting – exclude until student has been symptom-free for at least 24 hours.

8. Stiff neck associated with a fever and/or a recent injury.

9. Inadequate immunizations with known disease outbreak in school.

10. Refer to the VDOH "Communicable Disease Reference Chart for School Personnel" for other exclusions/information.

Health Treatment Plans

If a student with allergies, asthma, diabetes, seizures or other conditions requires special treatment at school (including administration of the medications), please see the "Links" list on the right to have the appropriate forms completed by the physician.  Make sure to include any emergency contacts where applicable.

Medications
Please note that ALL medications must have a Medication Authorization form completed by the parent and/or physician before they can be accepted at the school.  Students are NOT allowed at ANY time to carry medications to/from the school.  This must be done by a parent/guardian.

Over-the-counter medications requiring administration greater than the dose or age on the label must have physician's signature on the authorization form (Ex: Advil tabs for >12 yrs).  Prescription medications, of course, also require a physician's signature.

ALL forms must be updated every year.  Medications must be picked up the last week of school or will be disposed of by staff.
