    Additional Health Information for New Students

    Additional Health Information for New Students

    If you need help finding or paying for a doctor or dentist to do the examinations, the following resources are available to help you complete these requirements:
     
     
    As part of your child's enrollment, we ask that you fill out a detailed Health History Form. This form lets us know of any health conditions to be aware of to help your child be safe at school and successful in the learning process. 
     
    Please be advised that students are not to bring prescription medication, vitamins, or over-the-counter medicine with them to school without the required medical forms. The forms need to be signed by the parent and doctor and are available in the school office. These forms are valid for twelve months needing to be renewed by parent and doctor each year. 
     
    For your information, there are state required screenings done during the school year for vision and hearing for students in kindergarten, second grade, fifth grade, eighth grade , and tenth grade.  There is also a no-cost dental screening which could satisfy the Oral Health Assessment for your child.  All screenings are done in groups with licensed professionals.  Be aware that California law requires schools to maintain the privacy of students' health information.  Your child's identity will not be associated with any report produced becasue of this requirement.  If you want to opt-out and have your child excluded from a screening, you will need to contact the CJUSD Health Services at your school's health office or submit a request in writing.
     
    The Sacramento County Oral Health Program reminds parent that children must be healthy to learn, and children with cavities are not healthy. Children need their teeth to eat properly, talk, smile, and feel good about themselves.  Children with cavities and/or pain may have difficulty eating, stop smiling, and have problems paying attention and learning at school.  They further advise that tooth decay is an infection that does not heal and can be painful if left without treatment.  If cavities are not treated, children may become sick enough to require emergency room treatment and their adult teeth could become permanently damaged.
     
    Here are some important tips they suggest to help your child's teeth stay healthy:
    1. Brush teeth with flouride toothpaste twice a day.
    2. Floss daily
    3. Drink flouridated tap water (or take flouride supplements in non-flouridated areas).
    4. Eat healthy snacks
    5. Visit the dentist twice a year by age 1 or when the first tooth appears.
     
    If you have any questions or need further assistance, contact the CJUSD Health Services Department at your school's health office.
