Please, if your child is throwing up or has diarhea in the morning, or has
had a fever of 100 or above within the last 24 hours keep them home. Chances
are we will be calling you to come and get them.
If your child has been out for 3 or more days a doctors note is required for
them to return. If a child is sick for 3 days (72 hours) they should be seen by
a doctor as it could be a sign of something more serious. It could be a sign of
an infection that may need to be treated with antibiotics or your child could be
dehydrated if they have had vomiting/diarrhea for that many days. A simple cold,
without a fever, is not something that a child needs to be kept home for 3 days.
Parents of students who will be taking medication during the school year, be
sure to obtain permission forms from the nurse's office. It would also help
if your child takes a lot of tylenol or advil to send in a bottle with their
name on it.
We also are asking that children do not bring in peanuts/nuts or peanut
products to the scool. We now have several children with peanut/nut allergies
and if they should come in contact even accidentally with peanuts or peanut
products it could be life threatening.
