Xenia Community Schools is committed to the health and well-being of every student, and our goal is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our school community. The district has two full-time nurses and eight clinic aides to ensure that students receive minor treatment for any simple concerns, as well as provide maintenance care for any chronic conditions. Our staff members manage health screenings and oversee your child's medical records.


When to stay home...
As part of our goal to create a safe environment, we ask parents and families to help us maximize the time that students are healthy and ready to learn together! Children should stay home if they are experiencing a fever of 99.4 (if taken by forehead; 100.4 if taken by mouth), vomiting (within the past 24 hours), diarrhea (within the past 24 hours), experience a body rash with itching or fever, eye infection, head lice, or have been to the hospital. 

When to return to school... 
Students may generally return when they have been fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours, and no vomiting or diarrhea (for 24 hours). Students with other issues such as rash, eye infection, or a hospital/ER visit should be evaluated and cleared to return by a doctor. Students with head lice must be treated and approved to return by clinic staff. 

COVID-19 Information
Parents of all in-school students should note that there are some changes to processes and procedures during this time. Please refer to the protocols that are part of our school reopening plan for more information. In particular, families may want to review the protocols for symptoms specific to COVID-19 that clinic staff will follow in Fact Sheet #1.

With certain exceptions per XCS Board policy 5320, every student must meet Ohio's Immunizations for School Attendance guidelines.

In addition, while most forms for the district are collected through Final Forms [LINK], there are a few clinic authorization forms that must be completed and submitted each year, if needed: 

If you have questions about any of these forms or clinic procedures, please reach out to your school clinic staff member through the main office.
