Illness and Absences

Illness - if your child has a fever, they must be fever-free for 24 hours before they return to school. Please keep your child home if they have a fever or are throwing up. If you're unsure and have any questions, please contact our school nurse, Wendy Rice.

Absences - If your child is absent, we must have a written note or email stating the reason. We cannot mark an absence excused based on a phone call. Please always write a note.
