STUDENTS NOT FEELING WELL?

Unfortunately, the flu season is still going strong. The question frequently comes up of when to keep a child home from school, below are our district guidelines.


A child should stay home from school and their physician should be consulted if he/she has any of the following symptoms:

  • A temperature of 100.4 or greater
  • Green or yellow discharge from nose or eyes
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Cough or sore throat lasting longer than 2 days
  • Rashes or eruptions
  • Any other medical concern

Students should remain at home until symptom or fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication. If a student has been seen by a physician, and they have been deemed not contagious, a physician's note must be provided to the school indicating such in order for the student to return to class. As always, the best way to reduce your students risk of infection is to practice good hand-hygiene.

NEED TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD EARLY?

We understand scheduling your child's appointments outside of the school day is difficult. When you do need to pick up your child during the school day, please send a note with the student to drop off in the Main Office. They will then be given a pass to be excused from class.

To protect academic instructional time, we ask that your form of communication remain to the Main Office rather than calling or texting your child. To clarify, students are only allowed to use cell phones before and after school as well as passing time.
