Student Illness & Exclusion Policies

Exclusion Policy


To prevent the spread of disease and to protect all of the other students at school, please keep your child home if he/she has any of the following symptoms:

  • temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • severe sore throat
  • eyes with inflammation, redness, and watery or purulent drainage
  • communicable disease

If a student becomes ill during school, the parent/guardian of the student must be contacted before a student is allowed to leave the building. It is important to provide your student's school with updated contact numbers so parents/guardians may be reached concerning illness, as well as emergencies.


Students are welcome to return to school once they have been symptom-free (without medicine) for 24 hours. As always, please contact Nurse Jacy if you have any questions or concerns about your child's health.
