Health Guidelines

Prudence dictates that students and employees with acute symptoms of communicable disease stay home when ill. Keep your child(ren) home if they have any of the following:

  • A fever in the last 24 hours
  • Vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours
  • Frequent or excessive coughing and/or runny nose (anything other than a clear
    discharge)
  • Discharge around the eyes (e.g. pink eye)
  • Questionable rash
  • Any communicable disease

NOTE: A child being treated with an antibiotic must have received treatment for at least 24 hours before returning to school. Children must have a written note from their physician to be readmitted after having any of the following diseases: Hepatitis, Mononucleosis, Rashes, Ringworm, Scarlet Fever, Strep Throat, and Tuberculosis.

The following symptoms will result in the removal of a child from the classroom:
  • Fever of 100 degrees F or higher
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Body rash with fever
  • Sore throat with fever and swollen glands
  • Severe coughing
  • Eye discharge-thick mucus or pus draining from the eye, or pink eye
  • Yellowish skin or eyes

We encourage you to visit the CDC website for current advisories regarding issues and outbreaks that may be affecting our community as well as general guidelines for safeguarding your family from communicable diseases.
