IS MY CHILD SICK? SHOULD I SEND HIM / HER TO SCHOOL?
School is no place for a sick child. Please do not send your child to school if he/she has diarrhea, vomiting, a fever, rash, deep cough, or a communicable disease such as chicken pox, strep throat, pink eye, etc. If you are unsure of your child's symptoms, please call the school nurse before sending him her to school. You will be notified if your child becomes ill enough to be removed from school, sustains more than a minor injury, or has an emergency. It is the parent's responsibility to make arrangements to pick up an ill or injured child as promptly as possible. Children are not permitted to walk home or ride the bus when ill or injured per district policy. Please notify the nurse of any home / work / emergency numbers that change on your child's emergency card.
