Painted Sky Health Office
Our Health Aide, Mrs. Jody Shipton is here, not only to assist students that are ill or injured during the school hours, but also administer medication if needed and monitor chronic health students. If your child has a chronic health condition, such as asthma, diabetes, a seizure disorder or severe food allergies and requires a care plan or medication to be kept at school, please contact the Health Office.
Our goal is to "keep students healthy because healthy students learn better." Have your child start their day by eating a nutritious breakfast, encourage them to drink plenty of water & get a full nights rest. As general guidelines, please keep your child home if they don't appear well and have any ill symptoms, please view the Health Office News page for COVID-19 symptom information. Please inform the Health Office if your child is ill and/or has been diagnosed with a contagious illness or if there are any changes in their health or medications.
*** ONLY Parents/Guardians are to bring medication to the Health Office & sign a medication administration form ***
If your child should require a prescription or non-prescription (OTC) medication to be taken during school hours, please call or stop by the Health Office for information and you may click on the District Health Services link for the Districts policy on medications in the schools. ALL OTC & Prescription Medications must be FDA approved.
Please make sure your child is current on immunizations and as they receive them, send an updated copy to the Health Office. All 11 year old students are NOW required to get the Tdap & Meningococcal vaccines regardless of their grade. To view the state immunization requirements, click on the Arizona Department of Health Services link.
Please contact the Health Office with any questions regarding COVID-19, medications, immunizations or reporting an illness.
