• HEALTH PROTOCOL Parents: Every year, a number of students become ill for many reasons, including exposure to other ill children in the classroom. Remember to carefully assess your child’s health before sending them to school. A child who is sick will not be able to perform well in school and would benefit from rest and treatment at home. To help you make decisions about whether or not to send your child to school (or field trips), we put together a list of indicators to help you to decide.

    A child should not be in school and will be sent home if the following condition(s) are present:

    1. Fever over 100 degrees. A child should be fever-free for 24 hours (without medication) before returning to school.

    2. Persistent cough.

    3. Sore throat with fever and/or white spots on the throat.

    4. Rash with fever illness, such as chicken pox, measles, etc.

    5. Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. A child should be free from symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school.

    6. Red, itchy, and draining eyes – if conjunctivitis or “pink eye” is diagnosed, the child must be on medication for 24 hours before returning to school.

    7. Prolonged headache and stomachache.

    8. Swelling or pain at a level that may interfere with learning.

    9. Earache.

    10. Toothache.

    11. Head lice – a child must remain at home until treated with medicated lice shampoo and all the nits are removed. Please notify the health office.
