The month of December's lesson is focused on Responsibility


This month, we’re challenging your students to reflect on

their experiences and take responsibility for how they

choose to learn and grow from these experiences. We are

partnering with you to grow and develop your child’s sense

of responsibility. As you reflect as a family, celebrate your

accomplishments, identify areas you may want to improve,

and consider new ways to serve others in the days ahead.

When To Keep Your Child Home

Your child should be kept at home with these symptoms:


  • Elevated temperature (100 or greater)
    until fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication)
  • Persistent cough
  • Vomiting, nausea, or severe abdominal pain
  • Repeated diarrhea
  • Red, inflamed or discharging eyes (conjunctivitis/"pink eye")
  • Suspected scabies, impetigo, acute skin rashes, eruptions, any skin lesion in the weeping stage, or any other infectious childhood condition
  • Lethargic behavior

There will be times when it is difficult to tell when your child is too ill to go to school. Like adults, children have different tolerances for discomfort and illness. Even with a common cold, some are able to function fine while others are miserable. If your child is coughing continuously, he or she may not be able to concentrate, and may disrupt others in the class. A day of rest at home combined with lots of fluids speeds recovery. If you decide to send your child to school when he or she is on the “borderline” of being ill, it is a good idea to call the school nurse or send a note to the teacher. Be sure to let the school know where you can be contacted in case your child’s condition worsens.


If your child complains of headaches, stomachaches or frequently does not feel well, it is advisable to consult your physician.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your campus nurse for assistance.
