Walnut Hills has a half-time nurse and a full-time health technician available in the clinic during school hours. Please keep them informed of your child’s health needs and
let them know of any changes throughout the school year.
Emergency information is filled out online at the beginning of the school year on the parent portal: my.cherrycreekschools.org. The information entered will be used if your child becomes ill or if an accident occurs at school. For this reason, the information must be accurate and current.
Hand washing is the first line of defense against the spread of many illnesses. Please encourage your children to wash their hands frequently, especially before and after
When to Stay Home:
- Fever - 100 degrees Fahrenheit and over, your child should stay home and not return to school until fever free for 24 hours.
- Vomiting/Diarrhea – With or without fever, child should stay home until symptom free for 24 hours.
- Strep Throat - Children should be able to return to school after 24 hours of appropriate medical treatment.
- Pink Eye (conjunctivitis) – Children with redness and mattering of the eye should be kept home and treated by physician before returning to school.
Please keep in mind that if a student is well enough to be at school, then the student is well enough to go outside for recess.
Illness at School
Children may stay in the clinic until the parent arrives. Please keep your emergency information updated so we can contact you as soon as possible if your child is sick or injured.
Medication cannot be taken at school unless given by the nurse or nurse designee. Medication will not be accepted unless the district approved permission forms are complete and the medication is in the original container. The permission forms for prescriptive medication are available on the CCSD Website or in the clinic. The permission forms for over-the-counter medications are available at my.cherrycreekschools.org. Parents may come to school at any time to medicate their own children without permission forms; however they must access their children by way of the main office.
