Too Sick For School?
If your child has a fever, is vomiting or if you feel they may be contagious please do not send them to school. It may seem like a good idea to have them try to get through the day, however even if they only stay for a hour they may come in contact with 50 to 100 people. Viruses can spread rapidly through a school.
Please remember to report all serious illnesses to the school nurse, this includes strep, mono, impetigo, ringworm, chicken pox, whooping cough, meningitis, head lice and fifth's disease among others. This allows us to track these contagious conditions and prevent major outbreaks
Hand washing and covering your mouth and nose are the best ways to fight the spread of germs
Sick Calls from the Health Office
The nurse must call home anytime a student requests that a parent be called. This does not necessarily mean that the child is too ill to be in school. If your child is that ill the nurse will let you know that they must leave school. In all other cases it is the parents call. You know your child best. Some children can get through the day with a headache or cramps others cannot. If you feel having a standing order for tylenol would be helpful click the link to the medication page.
