The school has no way of providing for children who are ill except to contact the parent or emergency contact and request they be picked up and taken home. For this reason, it is critical that the school have current parent/guardian contact information on file.

Please notify the school office if your child is staying home due to illness. Call 858-453-2323x102 or email.


Prescription Medicine: Any pupil who is required to take medications prescribed by a licensed physician during the regular school day must do so assisted by the school nurse or other designated personnel. Parents desiring medication at school for their child must submit a "Physician's Recommendation for Medication" form to the school and must provide the medication clearly marked. A form can be obtained from the school office.

Non-Prescription Medicine: Non-prescription medicines MAY NOT be administered by school personnel without a doctor's note. In order that your child be given any medicine, a "Physician's Recommendation for Medication" form or note must be provided, signed by a physician. The signed forms may be faxed to our school by your doctors office: Fax # 858-453-6923.

All medications must be in its original container and marked with:

  • Name of pupil
