HEALTH GUIDELINES & ILLNESS POLICY
If your child becomes ill, please follow the guidelines below regarding when to keep your child home and when he or she may return to school:
- Fever over 100.0 degrees - must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications (Tylenol/Advil)
- Vomiting or Diarrhea - no vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before return
- Strep Throat - home until 24 hours after the first dose of antibiotics and fever-free
Keeping a sick child home prevents the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child the opportunity to rest and recover. If your child is sick and out of school, please notify the school by 8:30 AM.
If your child is absent and has an excuse from the doctor, hospital, or dentist, your child has 3 days from his/her return to school to give to the office to receive an "excused absence". After the 3 day period, the system automatically marks it as an "unexcused absence".
ALL medications given to students at school, whether over the counter or prescription, REQUIRE parent/guardian written authorization on the medical administration form (available in the clinic).
Parent authorization is accepted for up to 10 school days of medication administration (2 school weeks). Any time after that, a physician's signature is required.
