Sick Smiley

Students may be sent home from school for any of the following reasons:

  • Oral temperature above 100 Degrees Fahrenheit
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Severe abdominal pain or headache
  • Suspected infection of nose, skin, scalp, ears, or eyes
  • Suspected Communicable Disease
  • Head injury with persistent symptoms
  • Head Lice
  • Any disabling injury that requires physician follow-up
  • An injury that may require sutures
  • Immunizations that are not up to date
  • All students must be accounted for every day. Please call or email the front office of your child's school each day that they will be absent or late. A parental note is required for all absences. A doctor's note will be needed if a student is absent for more than 5 days.

    Children must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Motrin before returning to school.

    If your child has been vomiting the night before, they should remain home for the following day.

    Children attend a 20 minute outdoor recess everyday. It is important that they dress appropriately for all weather conditions. Research suggests that recess can play an important role in the learning, social development, and health of the elementary school child while laying the groundwork for developing a healthy lifestyle. Please send a doctors note if your child can not participate in recess due to a medical condition.

    If your child has an injury which requires the use of crutches, slings, boots, etc., or has a cast, please have your child report to the nurse's office with a doctor's note or the Emergency Room instruction sheet when they return to school. The nurse will then help arrange any accommodations which might be needed.
