If your child has a particular health problem or is absent due to illness, it is essential that the nurse be notified immediately. It is important that parents recognize symptoms of illness and act quickly to KEEP THE SICK CHILD AT HOME. Even when a child is not very sick but is a source of infection to classmates and staff.
Please do not send your child to school with a fever over 100 degrees or have symptoms affecting their ability to participate in school, such as a cough or suspicious rash. After a fever, your child's temperature should be normal for 24 hours before returning to school or if infectious, be on antibiotics 24hrs before returning to school.
