When to keep your child home…

Regular attendance is encouraged and is necessary for a child’s progress. However, in order to prevent the spread of communicable diseases to others, the child should stay at home if he/she has any of the following conditions:

                Fever                   A temperature of 100 degrees or above. The child should remain home until
                                             fever-free for 24 hours or on antibiotics for 24 hours.

               Vomiting             Your child should not attend school if he/she has vomited within the
                                             last 24 hours

               Diarrhea            Your child should remain home if he/she has had diarrhea within the
                                             last 24 hours.

               Undiagnosed rash
                                             Your child should not attend school until the rash has been diagnosed
                                             and treated. It could be measles, chickenpox or another contagious disease.

               Pink Eye (conjunctivitis)
                                             Pink eye is contagious. Your child should be seen by your doctor and treated
                                             before returning to school.

               Lice and /or nits (eggs)
                                             Your child should not return to school until he/she has been treated with a
                                             lice shampoo and as many  nits as possible have been removed. You must accompany your
                                             child upon his/her return to school and provide proof of treatment in
                                             receipt form with date of purchase. Take your child to the office to be checked.

There are times when your child looks and feels like he/she is too ill to study or learn in school. If so,
there is no point in being at school because he/she will not be able to learn.
