Overview of Health Services
Health Services at BOUSD is staffed by one RN with a School Nurse Service Credential and eight part-time health office assistants. Our goal is to keep your children as healthy and safe as possible.
No medications are allowed at school without proper documentation.
Rescue inhalers for students with asthma and epi-pens may be carried by students if their physician has filled out the medication form and approves the student to carry it.
Medical forms are available at school offices, or can be printed here:
If your child is ill, he/she must be fever free under 100 degrees (without the use of fever-reducing medication) for 24 hours before returning to school.
