K/1st Oral Health Form To make sure your child is ready for school, California law, Education Code Section 49452.8, requires that your child have an oral health assessment (dental checkup) by December 31 in either kindergarten or first grade, whichever is his or her first year in public school. Assessments that have happened within the 12 months before your child enters school also meet this requirement. The law specifies that the assessment must be done by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional.

Influenza cases have been on the rise in recent weeks. Signs and symptoms of influenza include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, and fatigue. Here are some simple steps you can take to prevent the spread of influenza:

  • CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. There is still time to get your flu shot!
  • Wash hands frequently – Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand rub. Be sure to wash hands after using a tissue.
  • Stay home when sick - Individuals who are sick with flu symptoms should stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicines, such as Tylenol.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes – Cough or sneeze into a tissue or clothing.
  • Avoid touching eyes, mouth, or nose
  • Try to avoid close contact with individuals who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects often 


Food Allergies and Holidays The holiday season is a time of community, school, and family celebrations and food is traditionally an integral part of many holiday activities. But for those who have life-threatening food allergies, it can feel like a time of increased risk or even isolation. DJUSD actively supports our community members with life-threatening allergies. Please take a moment to read Information About Food Allergies for Parents of All Children.


Sick Child? When should my child stay home sick from school? ¿Debe quedarse en casa o debe ir a la escuela? This quick reference guide will help answer the question, "Should I send my child to school or keep them home sick?"


Health Issue Impacting Your Child at School?  - If your child has a health condition and will need assistance at school, please contact the school nurse.  Medications can be taken at school with the appropriate documentation.  Please see this website under Medications or contact your school office.


New Vaccination Law effective January 1, 2016

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California.  Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade. 

For more information about SB 277, please see the Frequently Asked Questions available at: http://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/sb277faq/.

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Health’s website at www.shotsforschool.org, or contact your local health department or county office of education.

Thank you for helping us to keep our children and community healthy.


Laura Juanitas

Director of Student Support Services
