Ceres Unified School District Nurses
are dedicated to the health, safety and welfare of each student.
Their many duties include:
- Care of ill/injured students
- Supervision and/or administration of prescribed nursing skills
- Maintenance of student health records
- Communicable disease control
- Health care plans for major health problems
We encourage you to keep your children home if they are sick and contact your health care provider if they develop flu-like symptoms. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Remind your children to cough or sneeze into their elbow, not their hands, and remind them to wash their hands frequently with soap and water.
