PV Health Office Information

Welcome to the Pleasant Valley Community School District Nursing website. Our primary goal is to promote wellness and to maximize the link between academic achievement and student health and well-being. A cumulative health record is maintained for each student. Please inform the nurse of any changes or developments in your child's health.
Please report at least two symptoms to the office when your child misses school due to illness.
Fever - A child with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher should not attend school. The child should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
Sore Throat/Colds/Cough - Minor cold symptoms are common and usually don't interfere with school attendance. A persistent, frequent cough and/or constant nasal drainage may affect your child's performance at school, and he/she may be more comfortable at home. If your child is diagnosed with strep throat they may return to school 24 hours after antibiotics have been started.
Vomiting/Diarrhea - A child who has vomited should wait 24 hours and be able to retain solid foods before returning to school. A child who is having frequent diarrhea stools should not attend school.
Pink eye -  Most eye infections are highly contagious.  Symptoms include redness of eyes or eyelids, crusting of lashes and/or drainage from eyes.  This infection is spread by hand to eye contact.  Students may return to school after treatment has begun or when there is no longer a discharge from the eye.
Head Lice- Students are checked for head lice on an as needed basis only. Iowa Department of Public Health 14- day treatment plan
