Reminders from the Clinic

Reminders from the Clinic
Preventative Health Measures for COVID-19 and Beyond

In addition to the sanitization protocols and Synexis system put into place before the school year began, MPCS is taking precautions to minimize the spread of the Coronavirus during the school day. We are working hard daily to keep a safe environment.

The MPCS school clinic is available to your child in case of emergencies, as well as for assistance with ongoing conditions. Below are a few reminders about the clinic and our 2020-2021 policies and procedures to ensure the health and safety of your children. The clinic is also being vigilant in following CDC protocol for exposures and temporary quarantines if needed. (You can also always find general clinic forms and information on the Eagle Links page.)


Healthy Kids, Healthy School

Thank you families for erring on the side of caution when your child may not be feeling well, and keeping them home. MPCS will continue to take temperatures and screen students and staff every morning during carpool drop-off. A few items to note are:

  • As always, if your child is sick or has a fever above 99.9°F, do NOT send them to school. 
  • If your child has been ill, prior to returning to school, students must be fever-free without aid of medication for 72 hours, be free from symptoms for 72 hours, and/or on a newly prescribed antibiotic for 24 hours.
  • If your child is experiencing symptoms from seasonal allergies, please keep them home until the symptoms are well-controlled.
  • Remember to notify the nurses if your child has any medical updates. 
     

If your child(ren) must be absent for any reason:

Please fill out the absentee form so nurses can communicate with administration in case there's a new need for virtual learning.
