Power Announcement to Parents:

Parents, please be aware that PUSD is now implementing an electronic form of communication with the parents called Power Announcement. We will send an electronic message via cell phone (text), voice message, and/or email. In some cases, all of the above. If you would like to know more about Power Announcement, please contact Cody Marshall at 387.8101. Examples of a Power Announcement include if your child is ineligible, if your child owes lunch money, if your child has excessive absences, or if the school wants to specifically remind a grade level of an upcoming event.

A Note From the Nurse

Please remember to keep your child home from school if they develop any of these signs of illness:

  • Coughing, with other signs of illness

  • Fever or chills

  • Sore throat or trouble swallowing

  • Muscle aches with headache

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Breathing trouble

  • Unusual spots or rashes

A child should be fever-free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medicine) before returning to school. Keeping a sick child home helps prevent the spread of disease at school. Please help keep our school healthy.

If your child must use medication while at school, the parent/guardian must check in with the school nurse and complete the proper paperwork. All medications need to be in the original container. If it is a doctor prescribed medication, the prescription label must be present. 

If you have a student who has been prescribed an inhaler for asthma purposes or epi-pen for allergies, the school nurse must have written documentation from the parent/guardian giving permission for the student to carry these types of medications with them. These are the only medications students are allowed to carry.
