Health Services/Nurse

Welcome to the Colonel Johnson Elementary School Health Services page. The health office is open on school days between 7:50 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and can be reached by telephone at (520) 417-8406 or by email at thomasg@fhasd.org.
 
Please let the nurse know if your child has any medical concerns, allergies, chronic health conditions, or  requires medication at school. The health office will provide you with the necessary medical paperwork that allows the nurse to make appropriate accommodations for your child.

If your child is ill:
 
Antibiotics: Student that are prescribed antibiotics for a bacterial infection must wait 24 from the first dose of antibiotics before returning to school.
 
Fever: Students must be fever free (under 100.0) without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
 
Flu: Students must be fever free (under 100.0) without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school and must be well enough to attend class in a comfortable manner. Please be aware that anti-viral medication (e.g. Tamiflu) is not the same as an antibiotic and while it does reduce symptom duration, it does not decrease transmission.
 
Tonsillitis or Strep Throat: Students must be recovered or have been taking antibiotics for 24 hours before returning to school.
 
Rash: Students with a rash should not be sent to school without a physician’s note for clearance.
 
Vomiting and/or Diarrhea: Students experiencing vomiting or diarrhea must be recovered for 24 hours before returning to school.
