What should I do if my child must be absent?


Parents, please call the school office first thing in the morning if a child is going to be absent from school, or late to school. If a child does not arrive at school, we want to be sure he/she is safe with you.



What should we do if my child arrives late?


Please have your child report to the office before going to the classroom if he or she arrives after the start of school - 7:45 at Desert Oasis, 8:45 at Nadaburg. If your child gets to school after the starting bell, please sign them in at the school office before they join their class.



Can my child go home with a friend after school?


Please inform the school of any change in your child’s transportation before 1:00 p.m. – otherwise your child will need to go home as usual. A student may not ride or walk home with another student or get off at a different bus stop without a note from a parent or a timely call to the office.



When will I have a parent/teacher conference?


Check our School Calendar to see designated Parent/Teacher conference days. Also, please feel free to call and arrange a time to speak with your child's teacher at your convenience. We find that communication between school and home allows us to support each other, so contact your child's teacher whenever you feel a need.



What if my child needs to take medicine at school?


The school nurse may administer medication only if she has a signed parent consent allowing this. You may request this form in the school office. We ask that you list emergency contact numbers for use when parents cannot be reached. Please list at least two people to contact in the event of student illness or injury, and review or update forms as needed or requested.

Students may not have prescription or over-the-counter medications in their possession. All medicine should be given to the nurse for proper handling and dispensing. You and your child should keep prescription medication in the current pharmacy container, labeled with your child's name and correct dosage instructions. We ask that you and your child handle over-the-counter medications in the same way. The nurse will call your child from the classroom or cafeteria for timely administration of prescription and other medications.

The school nurse monitors immunizations, conducts health screenings, maintains medical records, and cares for students who are ill or have emergency medical needs at school. She works with parents and students and advises on preventive health care. She also calls parents to pick up children who are injured or ill.



Does Nadaburg offer school insurance?
Arizona offers KidsCare, a free or low-cost health insurance for children who are not on ACCCHS. You can find out more information from the nurse or through the school offices.
