Student Handbook » Illness


Any child with even a slight fever (99.4 degrees), who does not appear alert, or is not well enough to play outside, will be sent home. If your child has been absent due to an illness, s/he must be free of fever (without medication), episodes of vomiting, nausea, stomach cramps, or diarrhea for at least 24 hours prior to returning to school. If your child has a rash, please do not send him or her to school until your health care provider has stated that your child is not contagious. Do not send your child to school if s/he is sick.
