Unfortunately, children will be affected by illness from time-to-time.  There are common illnesses such as colds and the flu.  Also, there are communicable diseases that may affect children at school.  First and foremost, use common sense and good judgment when making a decision about your child’s attendance at school relative to illness.  Children should not attend school if:
  • They have a fever.  Students may return to school when they are 24 hours fever free without the use of fever reducing medicine (even if they feel better).
  • They are vomiting.
  • They have a communicable disease (see list under Communicable Disease heading).
Parents are responsible to keep their child home until the child is no longer contagious.  Parents must also notify the school if their child is diagnosed with a contagious disease.
