Guidelines for when to keep your child home:
Students MUST remain home if he/she has a fever over 100º. Doctors recommend that students be fever-free, without medication, for 24 hours before returning to school.
CONTAGIOUS DISEASES/ CONDITION Students must not have vomited for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
Students must remain home when he/she shows symptoms of a contagious disease such as strep throat, conjunctivitis (pink eye), flu, impetigo, ringworm, or if head lice is suspected. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have any questions.
Thank you for your cooperation in following these health precautions to protect your child and other children from illnesses. We know it can be difficult for working parents to have a sick child at home.
SPECIAL HEALTH CONCERNS
If your child has a specific health concern, please notify the nurse (asthma, severe allergy, diabetes, etc.) so that appropriate measure/planning can take place specific to your child.****See forms at the bottom of the page
It is very important that you complete your child's yellow Emergency Card. Please keep the information on the card current so that the school staff can easily contact the appropriate authorized person if your child becomes ill or is hurt while in school. For the safety of all children, the child will be released only to those people listed on the emergency card.
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION & REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS
A child's ability to learn, perform and behave can depend on how a child feels physically. We ask that sick children remain at home if their illness is, or may be, contagious and could cause illness in other children. We ask your cooperation by calling the school and informing us as soon as possible so we can detect similar illnesses in others sooner.
