keeping your child at home. We value the safety and health of your child and
work hard to stay in compliance with Department of health guidelines and
school protocols for reducing infection rates among school age children. Here
is a list of some of the more prominent infection reducing protocols for
wellness in our school.
□ If student has a fever of 100 F or more, the student should stay home for
24 hours after the temperature returns to normal and remains normal without
fever reducing medicines.
□ If student has nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, it is suggested the student
stay home until 24 hours after the last episode. As a rule of thumb, complete 24
hours of wellness before returning to school.
□ If student has any eye drainage or skin rash that may be disease-related or
if the cause is unknown, check with the family physician before sending the
student to school. DOH guidelines requires sending students to Dr with any
white ( crusty) or yellow drainage from probable conjunctivitis, and a DR note
before returning to school. As a rule of thumb return student to school after 24
hours of eye medication if prescribed, and when symptoms are under control .
□ If student is home ill, please call the school daily to report illness. Please
also check in with nurse before returning to class for the above mentioned
Remember: Children with an infectious disease can spread the disease when
they are in contact with others in the family or in the community.
