BPS Health Services Team

Bixby Public Schools believes that students are better able to take advantage of their educational opportunities if they are healthy. To that end, the district has a registered nurse or health clerk at each school site. These medical professionals provide health education, routine medication, health services, and crisis intervention. They also supervise vision and hearing screening, maintain individual student health records, and routinely consult on health and safety issues related to students.

When to Stay Home

These guidelines are based on the Oklahoma Law which states that any student who has a contagious disease or head lice may be prohibited from attending school.

Conjunctivitis: Students with thick white, yellow, or green discharge form either eye will be sent home and should receive medication for a minimum of 24 hours, be symptom free, or a physician's statement that they are not contagious before returning.

Diarrhea: Students who have diarrhea at school will be sent home and may return after being symptom free without medication for 24 hours.

Fever: Students who have a temperature of 100 degrees or more will be sent home and may return after being fever free without medication for 24 hours.

Head lice: Students with head lice or nits must be picked up from school and may return after treatment and all live bugs are gone. The school nurse or health clerk will check for lice prior to returning to class.

Vomiting: Students who vomit at school will be sent home and may return when they are symptom free without medication for 24 hours.

Other: Other possibly contagious conditions such as unexplained rash, will require a clearance from the doctor.

For illnesses which require an antibiotic, the child should have taken the medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
