Partner with us for healthy schools

Partner with us for healthy schools

In the last several weeks we have had several students coming to school with symptoms of respiratory and other illness. Because these illnesses spread quickly through the classroom, we are asking you to observe the following guidelines when deciding whether to send your child to school.

Please keep your child home if they have:

  • A fever (>100.4 F) or chills. Your child should stay home for 24 hours after the fever is gone, without taking fever-reducing medication (ie.Tylenol/Advil);
  • A cough, muscle or body aches, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell;
  • Significant congestion or runny nose, sore throat, reddened eyes, green or yellow drainage from the nose;
  • Fatigue or headache;
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea (24 hours free - before returning to school).

If your child has any of the above symptoms, please reach out to your health care provider. It is encouraged that those with symptoms be tested for COVID-19. If testing positive, please reach out to your school nurse/health room for further guidance.

One of the most effective ways to control the spread of illness in school is to keep your child home when symptoms first appear. Frequent hand washing, covering mouth/nose when coughing or sneezing, wearing masks, socially distancing, and receiving preventable vaccines, help prevent the spread of germs, viruses and illness.
