Nurses Information & Medical Policies

Title: Message from Mrs Suzuki [updated 08/24/2020]

 

Dear Lancer Nation.

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year.  Information is changing often.  Please check the LHS website, join a LHS social media platform, or see the updates on the LBUSD website.

 

For new students to LHS and LBUSD,

Please make sure you submit your immunizations and other enrollment documents.  Several of you are missing a component or two.  This is hindering the ability to obtain classes and enter into the LHS system.  Please contact the Counseling Office if you have questions.

 

To the LHS students, staff, and community,

I hope you are staying safe and well.  Times are very uncertain right now.  Data is starting to shift in the right direction.  Keep up the safe practices so life can return to some normalcy.  Please remember, you need to think safe to stay well.  Your health and safety is very important and you cannot take it for granted.

 

Remember to:

1.  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  You can also use an alcohol-based sanitizer.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

2.  Everyone, over the age of 2, is required to wear a face mask/covering.  This is a state mandate as of June 18.  Exceptions are while eating, drinking, or carrying out other activities that may impede the use of a face covering; a medical, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering; .    

3.  Practice social distancing.  Keep at least 6 feet between yourself and anyone who coughs or sneezes.  Avoid contact with people who are sick.  Avoid close contact for more than 15 minutes.

4.  Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use your bent elbow.  Throw the tissue in the trash after use.

5.. If you are sick, stay home.  Seek medial attention if you have difficulty breathing and have a high fever.

6.  Call 911 for medical emergencies.

7.  Clean and frequently disinfect areas, objects, and surfaces that you touch often to stop the spread of germs.

 

To better serve students during the pandemic, the Health Office has relocated to Bungalow 13B.  Medication forms are located in the Locker should you need ANY medication during the school year and a note from your doctor.  If you need a Spanish version, please contact me directly.  Please remember, all Health documents must be renewed/updated annually.  No medications can be on campus without the proper medication form.  PE accommodations need a doctor's note if restrictions are for more than 3 days.  Parent notes are good for 3 days only and are submitted directly to the PE teacher..

 

Please stay well and be safe.  Looking forward to seeing members of our LHS family soon.
