Frequently Asked Questions
We want your child to come to school, but please do NOT send a child to school if he/she complains of severe sore throat or headache, has nausea or has been vomiting, has pink eye, a rash, or has a temperature of 99.6 degrees or higher. Children must be fever-free and/or diarrhea-free (without the help of medication) for 24 hours before returning to school. Report absences due to contagious disease to the office so that precautionary measures may be taken for those exposed. Children prescribed antibiotics can return to school 24 hours after the first dose.
If your child becomes ill at school, his or her teacher will send him or her to the nurse’s office for evaluation. If necessary, you will be called to make arrangements to take your child home or to provide necessary medical care.
