Sicknesses such as chicken pox, flu, fever, etc… will be posted to notify parents of possible exposure. Head lice, or any outbreak of communicable illnesses will be logged and the Health Department will be notified.
If a child becomes ill at school, a parent will be notified and expected to pick up their child immediately (within one hour of notification). An ill child will be kept separately in the office area with qualified staff until the parent arrives. For the well being of all children and staff members, children who are sick with fever, diarrhea, bad cough, upset stomach or vomiting, diagnosed with a bacterial infection and placed on antibiotics may not attend or return to school for at least 24 hours after the fever or symptoms have subsided. We appreciate all your efforts to keep our school a healthy environment.
Staff will assist children in washing their hands immediately before eating, after using the restroom and after outdoor play time and/or holding an animal.
