Medication & Allergies
Please complete the required forms forwarded via our QuickSchools platform to notify us of your student’s medical history, allergies, medications, etc. These forms all must be completed and signed by the first day of school in order for students to attend school.
The school cannot dispense any prescription or over-the-counter medicines including ibuprofen and acetaminophen unless families have completed and submitted these forms.
TREE Academy recognizes that there are a variety of conditions that necessitate students taking medication during the school day, and that in some cases students are adequately trained to self administer their medication. In all cases, the school will take action(s) based upon the recommendations and directions of the physician, with the authorization of families.
Illnesses / Injuries
Please prevent the spread of illness by keeping ill children home. If a student becomes ill during school hours, the teacher or office administration will determine whether to call you to pick up your child in a timely manner. If we suspect any injury to a student’s head, or if we feel compelled by the student’s condition to call an ambulance, or in any cases of a medical emergency, we will call for an ambulance. The fiscal responsibility for that ambulance, as well as any attendant care, will be the families, and not TREE Academy, its staff, faculty or personnel.
Should a student experience a fever of 99.9 or higher, please do not bring them back to school until they have been fever-free for a minimum of 24 hours. If your child has a rash, eye symptoms, runny nose with yellow or greenish mucus, persistent coughing, earache, vomiting or diarrhea, head lice, or a skin infection, please have them examined by a healthcare professional. When a child is sick, the family should inform the school that the child will not be attending school and the reason. If your child has a communicable illness such as chicken pox, strep throat, mumps or influenza A or B, please let the school know.
At this time, Virtual Learning will not be an option for students unless they are absent due to a positive COVID-19 test. The only other exception is if we decide as a school to enact Virtual Learning due to COVID-19.
TREE Academy is a community that is built upon relationships and learning that is ideally achieved in person. Though we understand circumstances may arise that would allow for virtual instruction to be preferred, this shift is very difficult on both students and teachers due to lack of consistency and expectations.
COVID-19 Precautions & Responses
With regard to COVID-19, we will be following LA County Guidelines with CDC Guidelines also in consideration. For example, if there is a city wide mask mandate, we will require community members to wear masks. We ask that all community members are vaccinated and up to date on boosters for COVID-19, as this can easily spread throughout the community.
Testing will occur on the first day of the school year and following any extended breaks. If a community member is on campus and not feeling well, we will provide testing on an as needed basis.
