ILLNESS

It is often difficult to decide if your child should stay home from school when complaining of illness.  An objective sign is an elevated temperature.  It is recommended that a child be kept home from school until the temperature has remained normal (below 100°) for 24 hours.

If a child has a temperature of 100° or more, skin rash, diarrhea/vomiting, strep throat, or evidence of lice, the child will be sent home.  Parents are asked to use discretion in sending their children to school if they display any of these symptoms.  Please inform the school office if your child becomes sick with a contagious illness.  Notes will be sent home with the other children to warn parents of contact and incubation of communicable diseases.
