Sick Child Policy
Please keep your children home from school for the following health reasons to protect your child and their classmates:
Fever over 100 degrees
Red irritated eyes
Symptoms of communicable disease
Medication will not be administered in school nor at school-sponsored activities without parents' written authorization and a physician's written order. Medications must be delivered to school by parent or guardian, properly labeled by a pharmacist and consistent with the physician's order. Students may not bring medications to school themselves.
Head lice occur commonly in children of all backgrounds and socioeconomic groups. It spreads quickly and easily in schools, day care centers camps, and other areas where children congregate. By working together we can prevent the spread and repeated re-infestations of head lice.
School identification of head lice - students are excluded, from school until treated with a medicated shampoo or cream, and there are no visible nits.
Home identification - Please notify the health team if your child has head lice.Following treatment at home, students are re-inspected upon return to school. He/she will be re-admitted only if there are no nits present.
