Health and safety at school: 

Your child's health and safety are very important to us! When your child is showing signs of possible illness, the decision regarding school attendance can sometimes be difficult. In order to maintain a healthful, safe environment for all students and staff, we have established the following guidelines. 

Please keep your child at home if they have any of the following conditions: 

  • oral temperature of 100 degrees or more (no fever for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine) 

  • vomiting and diarrhea within the past 24 hours

  • earache lasting more than a day

  • persistent cough, croup, or chest congestion

  • reddened, mattering, or crusty eyes

  • any unexplained skin rash

Influenza: A child who displays fever, persistent coughing, congestion, chills, or muscle aches in any combination should be checked by a doctor and kept at home. 
Head Lice: If your child has head lice that are alive, keep your child at home to treat him/her and then he/she can return to school after that. Nits (eggs) should be observed as you continue treating and combing. 
Any Communicable Diseases: If your child has started on an antibiotic, they must be on an antibiotic for at least 24 hours (some diseases require longer) before returning to school. 
***Students who wish to participate in school-sponsored activities must attend school the day of the activity, unless permission has been given by the administrator for the student to be absent. ***
