Parents are advised to keep their child home if they have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater, have vomiting, diarrhea, persistent respiratory or flu symptoms. Students who are prescribed antibiotics for strep throat need to be taking the medication for a full 24 hours before returning to school.
- In the event that your student becomes ill during the school day, a parent or guardian will be contacted to pick up the student. With parent permission, the student may be dismissed to another family member or friend provided proper identification is shown. If the school is unable to reach the parent, the emergency contact (designated each September on the emergency card) will be called to pick up the student.
- Children who are absent from school must bring a note from home upon returning to school. If the child is absent for 5 con¬secutive days due to a communicable and/or infectious disease (or for any health reason), she/he must bring a note from the doctor and check with the School Nurse.
