Welcome from Mr. Hiley

Dear Ivan Green Families:

We have SO MANY sick students! It hit our family this week too. I know how disruptive it can be to have to stay home, but we are asking you to take extra caution in keeping your children home when they are sick. We have seen a huge increase in respiratory illnesses at Ivan Green the last few weeks. It seems that the main respiratory illness at the moment is taking students out of school for three school days by the time fevers are gone for 24 hours and the respiratory symptoms are improving.

Here are some general guidelines to follow for keeping your child home:

  • Students cannot return to school until they are 24 fever free without the use of fever reducing medication.
  • Students must be clear from vomiting and diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Students with respiratory systems are less likely to be contagious if their symptoms are generally improving before they come back to school.

When in doubt, I encourage you to phone our school nurse for advice. Mrs. Izzo is happy to talk with anyone to share her advice. Mrs. Izzo's phone number is 339-1314.


Lucas Hiley. Ed.D.
