Illnesses at School

Students who become ill while at school will need to see the nurse (or other appropriate school personnel) before being permitted to leave school. Students may return to school from an illness only when they have been fever free for 24 hours without the aid of medication.

Guideline for Parents:

If your child contacts a communicable disease such as chickenpox, fifth disease, measles, or mumps that has been confirmed by a doctor, please notify the school. Letters may be sent home to the parents/guardians of their classmates to notify and inform them of the signs/symptoms of the disease, in accordance with state and federal privacy laws.

If your child needs to be excused from recess or physical education for more than two (2) days, written permission from your physician is required. If your child is medically excused from gym or recess by a physician, he or she is not eligible to participate in any extracurricular sports or activities until medically cleared to do so. When a child returns after a significant illness or injury, the doctor should provide a note indicating when a child may resume normal physical activity, if applicable and that the child is medically cleared to attend school.

It is recommended you keep your child home and call your physician when one or more of the following symptoms persist:

-Fever of 100.0 of above

-Nausea or Vomiting

-Skin Rash or Sores

-Inflamed, swollen or reddened eyes

-Excessive coughing or sneezing


-Sore Throat


Your child must be free from a fever for 24 hours before returning to school, or you may provide a doctor's note indicating that the child is medically cleared to attend school.
