Illness and Sending Your Child to School


To protect other students and staff all parents should keep their child(ren) home from school when the child has any of the following conditions:
· Fever - greater than 100°F within the past 24 hours (before fever reducing medications are given) or the child is not feeling well or is unable to participate in normal daily activities.
· Diarrhea within the past 24 hours.
· Vomiting within the past 24 hours.
· Rash with fever or behavior change that is undiagnosed.
· Untreated head lice (they may be in school once treatment has started).
· Eye drainage.
· Unusual color of skin, eyes, stool or urine.
Please report all suspected or diagnosed illnesses to the school. The Health Office should be notified when a student has a communicable condition such as chicken pox, strep throat, shingles, or head lice so appropriate measures may be taken.
