Throughout the school year many children in our school district will be hospitalized or have an extended illness. Any pupil with a temporary illness or injury which makes attendance in regular day classes or alternative education program impossible or inadvisable may receive Home/Hospital Teaching. Instruction in the Home/Hospital Teaching Program will be provided by the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District.
The purpose of the Home/Hospital Teaching Program is to support the student in maintaining a continuity of instruction during the student’s absence from the regular program.
To qualify for the Home/Hospital Teaching Program, the student’s illness or injury must be diagnosed and verified in writing by a licensed physician and as well be registered at a school within our district boundaries. The term “temporary disability” means disabled by accident, or by physical, mental or emotional illness for a period of four (4) weeks or longer. A Physician’s Recommendation for Home Teaching Form is required.
When you become aware that your child’s health status may necessitate an extended school absence, please notify the school secretary or school nurse.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please call (562) 868-0431 Ext. 102102/102232.
