School Sickness Policy

Please keep your child home if they have had a fever of 100.5 or higher, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours. If your child needs to take medication during school hours, you will need to sign an authorization form. The medication must be in its original package (no baggies) and kept in the office to be dispensed by school staff. Medications need to be brought in by and adult, not the student. Students are not allowed to carry things like cough drops, Tylenol, ibuprofen, Tums or Neosporin with them. The medication must also be indicated for children 12 and under on the label.

Planned Absences

If your student will be gone from class, please call, email or send a note (a day or two prior please) so the teacher can be prepared for their absence. It can also help us plan ahead if they need to be picked up when they are out of the intermediate building for PE or music. If they will be gone for more than 3 days, there is a Planned Absence Form that needs to be completed at least 48 hours in advance so the teacher can have time to prepare homework. Thank you for your help with this.
