Our school is taking many important precautions to help keep our children, families and staff HEALTHY & SAFE this school year.
Please DO NOT bring your child to school if he/she is ill.
You are the best judge of your child’s health, and we trust you will not bring a sick child to school. However, if the opinion of a staff finds your child sick, you will be called to have your child picked up to ensure the welfare of all children within the school.
Your child will be sent home under the following criteria:
· A fever of 100 degrees or higher*
· Inflammation of the eyes (excessive redness, glassy or discharge)
· Communicable disease as defined by the Department of Health/Center for Disease Control
· Unknown rash
· Excessive nasal discharge, especially if yellow or greenish, since this indicates infection
Please be advised that if your child is experiencing a serious, contagious illness, you MUST have a doctor’s note stating that said child is no longer contagious and can return to school.
If your child is experiencing a COUGH, a FEVER, or any symptoms of COVID-19, please have your child tested for COVID-19. It is an EFFECTIVE way of protecting the whole school community.
Please make sure your child dresses appropriately for the weather.
*Your child MUST be fever free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medicine) in order to return to school.
