You may have already read the TIS Family Handbook, but we would like to emphasize a few important things listed below. Let’s review them again.


Medication at school

1.Please bring the medicine with the Authorization for Medication Form on our website (TIS Blog – Download Forms – Medical – Forms – Authorization for Medication Form) to Health Room in the morning. Make sure to include information for all medicines. This will also prevent other children from taking the medicine by mistake.

2.Student needs to come to Health Room by him/herself at appropriate time to take the medicine.


Picking up a sick/injured student from school

When your child needs to be picked up due to illness or injury, a parent or guardian will be called. Due to our limited space and also your child’s condition, your child should be picked up within 30 minutes or as soon as possible.
If you are unable to pick up your child more than 1 hour, it is your responsibility to find someone who can. Please understand that sick/injured children (K1-Grade 5) are not allowed to leave school on their own accord.


Stay Home Policy

If your child is experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, he/she needs to be kept home from school.


If a student has a fever of 37.5 degrees Celsius (99.5 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher taken under the arm, accompanied by sore throat, any form of rash, vomiting, diarrhea, earache, irritability or confusion, he/she should remain at home until at least 24 hours after the body temperature returns to normal without fever-reduce medicine.


If student has vomited or had diarrhea at home, he/she needs to stay home until at least 24 hours after the last episode.


Notify any changes

Please notify any changes related health matter (immunizations, allergies, medical conditions, any injuries – fracture, etc., contact information – phone numbers, etc.) as soon as possible. It is very important for me to know your child’s updated information.

Thank you very much for your supports and understanding. Please let me know if you have any concerns/questions.
