Welcome to Desert Vista Health Center

  • Medication Guidelines:

    As of January 1, 2010, the Desert Vista Health Office will no longer be providing “stock” acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin). Parents must provide the Health Office all such over-the-counter medications for their students' use.

    DESERT VISTA IS A DRUG-FREE CAMPUS. FOR THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF ALL OUR STUDENTS, ALL MEDICATIONS, INCLUDING TYLENOL AND ADVIL, MUST BE KEPT IN THE SCHOOL NURSE’S OFFICE.  STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY MEDICATIONS WITH THEM TO SCHOOL.


    Please read the Medication Guideline Policy here - PDF

    Students requiring an over-the-counter pain reliever during the school day MUST have had their parent or guardian deliver it to the Health Office with a signed permission slip, and the medications must be administered by the School Nurse.
    Please print and complete the Parent/Guardian Consent Form (download - PDF) before delivering it to the School Nurse along with the referenced medication.
    Except in specific cases, the school nurse will NOT distribute medications during the first or seventh periods.

    Hearing Screenings:

    All students in 9th and Special Education will have their hearing checked annually. Others will be checked as the need arises, and parents who have concerns about their child's hearing should contact the school nurse.

    Visual Screenings:

    All students in Special Education have distance vision checked annually. A referral slip is sent home when a student does not pass screening so the parent can arrange for an examination by a vision specialist. Others will be checked as the need arises, and parents who have concerns about their child's vision should contact the school nurse. If there are financial concerns, parents should contact their school nurse for possible assistance.
