As the Cold/Flu Season is approaching, we are reminding you, in fairness to ALL children, please keep your child home if they exhibit any of the following symptoms/conditions that may indicate the start of a communicable disease:
*Temperature of 100 degrees or higher within the last 24 hours (Must be fever free for full 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Motrin)
*Diarrhea and/or Vomiting within the last 24 hours
*Severe cold, especially with greenish/yellow nasal drainage
*Undetermined rash (requires Dr. note indicating it is not contagious to return to school).
*Sore Throat and/or difficulty swallowing. (Must be on antibiotics 24 hours before returning to school with Strep Throat)
*Red, watery, burning, itching eyes, or yellowish drainage. (Pink eye must be treated for 24 hours before returning to school)
Please refer to our Parent Handbook and COVID policy: Parent Handbook pg. 21
If your child is ill the night before or the morning of a school day, you are requested to keep the child home. If your child comes to school, and the teacher believes the child is too sick to function in the class, the school reserves the right to send the child home. A call will be made, and the child will need to be picked up from school. A child must be un-medicated (no acetaminophen or ibuprofen), fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. If a child has a fever at night, they may not come to school the next day; if the fever does not return the following night, then they are welcome back the next day as long as they show no other symptoms of illness (i.e. vomiting, diarrhea, excessive sneezing or coughing).
If a child has been diagnosed as having a contagious disease (e.g., chickenpox, strep throat, lice, etc.), please notify the office so that classroom precautions can be taken and notification sent home
