Sick Student Policy

  • RETURNING TO SCHOOL AFTER ILLNESS – Please do not send your student back to school until he/she has not vomited, had diarrhea, or had a temperature over 99.4 degrees (without benefit of medication) for 24 hours.

RASHES Please do not send your child to school if he/she has a weeping rash such as impetigo, ringworm, etc. Your child must have a doctor’s note, had treatment for at least 24 hours, and have the rash covered with long sleeves, pants, or band-aids before being allowed to return to school. Please do not send a child with a rash and a fever, even low grade (less than 100 degrees).

PINKEYE (Conjunctivitis) If a student has red, itchy eyes with drainage, crusting and swelling, please contact your doctor to have your student checked for pinkeye. Pinkeye  is very contagious and is spread by contact. If your student is diagnosed with pinkeye, he or she must be treated with medication for 24 hours. A doctor’s note is also required if the doctor does not diagnose pink eye.

Please refer to the Student Handbook for the complete Health Service Policy.              

               If you have questions, you can call the school nurse at extension 4002.
