Illness and Accidents

If a student becomes ill or has an accident at school, every effort is made to notify parents.  We provide first-aid and a place for your child to rest while waiting to be picked up.

It is imperative that your telephone numbers are kept up to date at all times.


A doctor’s order and a parent signature must accompany medications taken at school.  Authorization forms for the administration of medication during school hours are available in the nurse’s office.  For over-the-counter medications, a parent signature is required or any authorization form which is also available in the nurse’s office.  If over-the counter medications will be required longer than 5 days a doctor’s order will be needed. For any medications, a week’s supply should be sent with the student on Mondays in the properly labeled container from the pharmacy and the empty container will be sent home on Fridays.  Unlabeled medication in anything other than the pharmacy container will not be accepted.  These regulations are for the protection of our students.  Thank you for your cooperation.

APS Student Accident Insurance

Student accident insurance forms are available at registration time and parents are strongly encouraged to purchase this insurance even though it is optional.  East San José Elementary School is not covered by liability insurance.

Child Protection

State law requires all state employees, which includes East San José Elementary School staff, to report suspected cases of child abuse or neglect. If there is a restraining order, a divorce decree, or a protective custody order for any member of the family involved with your child, please bring it to the office so a copy can be made and attached to your child’s registration and emergency cards. We want to insure the safety of all children, but we must have a copy of any legal documents—we can’t rely on the word of one parent or another.
