Welcome to the Health Office at Desert Shadows Elementary
The purpose of this page is to provide information to parents and guardians to keep Desert Shadows a healthy and safe place to learn.
Please let me know if your child has strep throat, pink eye, or any other communicable situation. I will then alert the classroom so the rest of the parents can monitor their children and keep them HOME before coming to school and infecting the entire class.
Thank you for your continued support!

Students with Life-Threatening Food Allergies
On behalf of the DSES kids with life-threatening food allergies, we would appreciate keeping the allergens out of the classroom.
Students with peanut allergy? No peanut butter crackers for snack please. The child will appreciate not needing the nurse to run at them with a needle.
The best way to decrease illness? Wash your hands!
