How to help children understand the Coronavirus
Keep explanations age appropriate
- Early elementary school children: brief, simple and factual information is best. Reassure them that their schools and homes are safe and that adults are there to help keep them healthy and to take care of them if they do get sick.
- Upper elementary and early middle school children will be more vocal in asking questions about whether they truly are safe and what will happen if COVID-19 comes to their school or community. They may be more susceptible to rumors and beliefs that create fear. Talk to them about how they feel and give them factual information.
- Upper middle school and high school students are able to discuss the issue in a more in-depth fashion and can be referred directly to appropriate sources of COVID-19 facts. Having such knowledge can help them feel a sense of control.

Physical examinations are required for all students entering new to the school system at the pre-school level. Physical examinations are required yearly for all students enrolled in pre-school age programs. Children who do not meet this requirement will not be admitted to school unless they present proof of a confirmed doctor's appointment for the physical to be completed. If proof of the physical examination is not submitted within twenty (20) days after the date of examination, the student will be excluded from school. Parents should always be encouraged to complete all health requirements prior to the student's first day of school.

School personnel will take every precaution to avoid accident or injury to the students. The principal will be notified immediately when a serious accident occurs. Parents will be notified of any serious accident, especially bumps or blows to the head.
An injured student will be taken to the school clinic if the nurse or clinic assistant is on duty. If the clinic is not staffed, the injured student will be taken to the school office.
School officials will follow the instructions listed on the student’s Emergency Medical Information Form. This form will be sent home in the school packet at the beginning of the school year and will remain on file for the duration of the school year. If any changes occur on this form, please inform the school office immediately. It may make a difference if your child should be ill or injured. A sample copy of the Student Emergency Information Form can be found on the website.
Chronic, Serious, or Altering Medical Conditions
If there should be a condition that meets these standards, it will be dealt with by the faculty and staff of Huber Heights City Schools, the parents, and any other relevant medical experts. A conference is the usual process. Call the school for more information.
In case of illness, the student will be given a clinic pass and sent directly to the clinic or office. The parent will be notified if the student is too ill to remain at school. If the parent cannot be contacted, the relative or neighbor listed on the Emergency Medical Information will be contacted.
Students attending school must comply with all federal, state, and local immunization and health examination requirements. Parents are to provide the schools with evidence of the dates that students were properly immunized against diphtheria, pertussis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, rubeola, rubella, mumps and vericella. Pre-school students must also present evidence of the dates they received haemophilis B (HIB).
Evidence of immunization is required at the time of enrollment in school. If all immunizations are not completed, then written evidence that the student is in the process of receiving such immunization and that it will be completed within 14 days of entering school is required prior to enrollment. Students failing to be properly immunized may be excluded from school attendance.
If federal, state, or local requirements permit it, a student may be exempted from one or more of the immunizations by submitting a written statement from a doctor stating that the required immunization threatens the health and welfare of the student or by the parent completing an immunization objective form and agreeing to comply with the condition under which the exemption is granted.
Please keep the staff and school nurse updated and aware of any medical conditions that may manifest themselves during the school year/day (i.e., food allergies, allergies, asthma, Epi-pen, seizures, diabetes, breathing treatments, other treatment, etc.)
In conjunction with medical conditions, please notify the clinic assistant and school secretaries on updated address changes, phone number changes, and emergency contact number changes in order for parent(s) and/or guardian(s) to be properly notified of a student illness or emergency.
*Epi-pen, inhalers, and other medication forms, along with the medication given must be at school by the first day of school.
Medication administration is discouraged during school hours. However, any student who must take medication during the day must adhere to the following procedures:
- Request for Medication Administration Form signed by the parent/guardian and physician and medication to be administered must be presented to the school’s main office before the start of the day.
- Medication must be in the prescription original container, labeled with student’s name, medication name, frequency of administration, dosage, and prescribing physician name.
- Medication brought to school must be secured (locked) and dispensed by an administrator, certified personnel, or designee.
- Each dose administered will be recorded on the medication log with date and initial of person dispensing that dose.
- Student is responsible to report to the main office for his/her medication
