Cold and flu season is here! To prevent the spread of infection and proper recuperation of an ill child, parents are requested to follow these health guidelines.

Guidelines for when to keep students at home:

Temperature: The child must not be in school and be fever free for 24 hours before a school return.
Vomiting: Each child must NOT have vomited for 24 hours before a school return.
Nasal Discharge: Continuous nasal discharge increases the risk of illness to other children and staff. Please keep child home.
Troublesome Cough
Diarrhea
Contagious Diseases: The child must stay home when showing symptoms of a contagious disease such as strep throat, pink eye, flu, impetigo, ringworm, coughing, and rash.  If unsure and have questions, call the child’s school. Let’s work together to stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit!
