Open Airways

The American Lung Association Open Airways Program is offered to Ventana Ranch students.  The program has been shown to make a significant difference in improving asthma self-management skills, decreasing asthma emergencies, and raising asthma awareness.  Group interaction helps students find peer support and increases self-confidence.  Classes are offered to 3rd - to 5th grade students who want to learn more about asthma.

Asthma

Any student who has asthma should have an inhaler in the health room and an Asthma Action Plan.  The action plan must be renewed and signed by your child's physician at the beginning of each school year.  The Asthma Action Plan can be found in the link below.

CDC recommends that people get the flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. Children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.

When to keep your child home from school...

Please do not send your child to school sick!  If he or she has been prescribed antibiotics they may return to school if they are feeling better and have been on antibiotics for >24 hrs.  If your child has symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea, please keep them home until symptoms resolve.  If your child has flu-like illness or any illness with fever, have them stay home until symptom-free for 24 hours and fever-free (Temp < 100 F) for 24 hrs. without using fever-reducing medication.  These guidelines help keep your child from getting sicker and help prevent the spread of illness to others at school.  THANK YOU!
