Petitions will be available on the Counseling Portal under "Forms and Info" beginning tomorrow 6/1. The deadline to submit a petition request is 3:00 p.m. on Thursday 6/7.

A MESSAGE FROM THE NURSE'S OFFICE
Please note below the items that may pertain to your student for the next school year. Many of these items can be done when visiting your student's physician over the summer. Depending on his/her medical needs, the following information is important to provide the Nurse's Office before the start of school in August:

  • MEDICATION(S):
    • Medications that require a prescription for Asthma Inhaler, Epipen, ADD/ADHD medications, or antibiotics being administered during school hours or on a retreat or field trip must have a Parent/ Physician Request for Medication Form on file with the Nurse's Office for this school year. This completed form should be brought in, faxed, or emailed to the JSerra Nurse. All medication must be in its original container with the child's name clearly marked.
    • California law states that students may NOT carry ANY over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medications on them while at JSerra and/or for any JSerra-sponsored event (field trips). All medication is kept in and dispensed from the Nurse's Office and/or by a designated JSerra school personnel during JSerra-sponsored events.

  • DIABETES:
    • If your student has Type 1 Diabetes, you and your student are required to come to the Nurse's Office one week prior to the beginning of school to fill out and sign a Diabetic Contract. Please see the "Important Health Issues" tab on the Nurse's Office portal for a list of diabetic supplies needed. Please present the nurse with your student's physician orders and diabetic supplies at the time of your meeting.

  • IMMUNIZATIONS REQUIRED FOR SCHOOL ADMISSION
    • For all new incoming or transferring students, California State law requires that all students must be fully immunized and provide immunization paperwork before attending any school. Without immunizations, the student is not allowed admission. However, if your student has any vaccines that require a catch-up schedule, you will need to submit a letter from his/her physician regarding the name and the date the vaccine is to be given before the start of school.
    • If your student is not immunized, a letter from his/her physician must state the medical exemption. This must be provided to us before the start of school. Medical exemption is the only valid exemption accepted.

Please access more information regarding our Nursing Protocol, updated health information, and medical forms at jserra.org/parents-students/nurse. Feel free to contact the Nurse's Office at 949.493.9028 or nurse@jserra.org.
