Children with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher are to be kept home until they are free of fever and symptoms for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. If antibiotics are prescribed for any reason, your child must take them for 24 hours before returning to school. Children who come to school are expected to participate in all activities, including outdoor time. If your child is unable to participate in all aspects of the class, please keep him/her home.
If your child becomes ill at school, you will be contacted and expected to bring your child home within 30 minutes of receiving a call from the school. If you are not available, we will call one of your emergency contacts.
In the case of head lice, you may be asked to provide a doctor’s note confirming the absence of lice before your child returns to school. We may also require a doctor’s note indicating that your child is free of infection in the case of some infections.
