Illness and injuries
Upon occasion, it is necessary for your child to remain home due to illness. The following guidelines should be followed when determining whether to keep your child home?
1. Your child should not be sent to school hoping that he/she will feel better after arriving.
2. Your child should be kept home following a night time bout of nausea, vomiting or diarrrhea and watched for further symptoms.
3. Your child should remain home if he/she has had a temperature of 100 degrees or higher and be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication such as Children's Tyelnol or Children's Motrin.
4. Any student who has a temperature of 100 degrees or greater will be sent home from school and should not return until fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.
Minor injuries due to accidents occur on a daily basis. You can be assured that appropriate care will be given to your child. Parents will be notified of any injuries as the case warrants.
If your child has been injured at home, please seek the appropriate medical attention. Do not send your child to school to see the nurse for an injury sustained at home. We are not equipped to diagnose and treat all injuries. If we feel your child's injury needs immediate medical attention, we will contact you to come and get your child.
