Sick Policy

Please do not send your children to School when they exhibit these symptoms:

  • Nasal discharge that is heavy enough to require frequent wiping, especially if accompanied by sneezing and/or coughing. (Colds are most commonly spread by air droplets from sneezing and coughing).

  • Cough, especially if accompanied by other symptoms such as a runny nose or sneezing.

  • Temperature of 99 degrees or greater within the past 24 hours.

  • Vomiting one or more times in the previous 24 hours.

  • Diarrhea in the previous 24 hours.

  • Conjunctivitis or pink eye. (Defined as pink or red eyes with white or yellow discharge, often with matted eyelids after sleep.)

  • Infestations, such as head lice. Keep at home until all nits have been removed.

  • Rash with fever or behavior change.

  • Streptococcal infection, until 24 hours after treatment has been initiated.

  • Signs of possible illness including lethargy, irritability, crying, etc.

The need to send your children home will be at the sole discretion of the School.

 

We wish to keep all children and teachers as healthy as possible.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
