• Illness Policy

    Children who are ill are to be kept at home until they have been without fever, vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours. However, children with ear infections or sinus infections may return to school before 24 hours of antibiotic therapy have passed if the child is feeling well enough to return to school.
    Children should be kept at home in the following situations:
    • Fever of 100.4 F or greater 
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Presence or suspicion of a communicable disease such as, but not limited to, chicken pox, impetigo, mumps, whooping cough, bacterial conjunctivitis, scarlet fever, measles, scabies, and strep throat.
    Children who are in school and develop symptoms of any of the above will be sent home.
    • All exclusions from school for health reasons must go through the Health Office.
    •  If unable to reach parents, emergency contacts will be called.
