Overview

Welcome Back to the 2023-2024 School Year
 

I would like to remind you of important health practices that reduce illness and protect families, staff & students.

1. STAY HOME WHEN SICK

Keep your student home if they are not feeling well.  SPPS students must not come to school if they are feeling sick.  Follow the SPPS Illness Guidelines below to reduce the spread of illnesses in school.

Keep your child home if he or she:

  • Has a fever of 100 degrees or more during the previous evening/night or morning.
  • Has vomited or had diarrhea during the night or in the morning.
  • Has a rash that may be caused by a disease or if the cause is unknown, check with your family physician before sending the student to school.

2. PRACTICE GOOD HAND HANDWASHING

Hand washing is an important way to decrease the spread of illnesses.

Please practice hand washing with your student at home.

Welcome to Health Office at Benjamin E. Mays School

Each Saint Paul Public School has a School Health Office with a Licensed School Nurse.  Some schools may also have a Health Assistant who works in the Health Office.

Immunization Requirements

State law (MS 121A.15) requires that each student in a Minnesota school be protected from childhood diseases by receiving immunizations. Parents/guardians may obtain a legal exemption for medical reasons or conscientious beliefs

Medications at School

At some point your student may need to take medication during the school day. Saint Paul Public Schools require written parental authorization for any medication during the school day and health care provider authorization is required for medication taken for more than 2 weeks.
