Signs of Illness
Students and families may not be sure if a child is too sick to attend school. Ordinarily we ask that children be sent to school even if they seem a little tired or irritable in the morning as long as they do not have any of the signs or symptoms listed below.
- Keep your child home if he or she:
- Has a fever of 100 degrees or more during the previous evening or night or in the morning.
- Has vomited or had diarrhea during the night or in the morning.
- Has a rash that may be caused by a disease or if the cause is unknown, check with your family physician before sending the student to school.
- Missing School for Illness:
- If student is at home sick, please call the school attendance line daily to report the reason for absence.
- If a student will be absent for more than one day, parents can contact the school for homework.
- Students with over 7 days of absences due to illness will be required to bring a health care provider’s verification and must be checked/excused by the school nurse. If your student has a chronic illness please notify the School Nurse.
