Notes from the Front Office:
Am I too Sick to go to School?
Cold and Flu season will soon be upon us. Here are some tips to keep in mind, and help you decide if you need to keep your child home in order to control the spread of communicable diseases in the classroom.
Child has vomited in the last 24 hours
Fever of 99.6 or above (school must send student home for fevers of 100.0+)
Obvious severe cold symptoms (runny nose, nasal congestion, persistent chronic cough or sore throat)
Eyes red, itchy, draining or matted shut in the morning. These are symptoms of Conjunctivitis & Pink Eye, usually contagious and needs to be treated by your physician.
If your child needs special health care or medication during school time, please follow the School Medication Policy or contact the school nurse for more information at 283-1003.
If your student stays home please remember to contact the school attendance line at 283-1000 to excuse your child’s absence.
