Making the right call when your child is sick:
School policy requires a child stay home is he or she:
Has a fever or 100.0 degrees or higher
Has been vomiting or has diarrhea
Has symptoms that keep your child from participating in school, such as: very tired, uncontrollable
cough or sneeze, headache, body aches, earache, bad sore throat accompanied by other symptoms
such as rash, headache or stomach ache.
We often have many children and adults with colds coming to school, and each one is passing their sickness to others. Please help others from becoming sick by keeping your child home while the sickest.
Please send in any updated and current health information and medications along with permission forms.
