Classroom Infection Prevention
Remember the 24 Hour rule of thumb!
Students should NOT attend school if:
While your child’s physician can help you determine if your child is able to return to school, it is important to make sure that they are truly feeling well and able to make it through 6+ hours of the school day.
If they still seem tired, pale, with little appetite, not tolerating solid foods, and generally "not him/herself", please consider keeping them home from school. Please read our Sick Child Guidelines to help you make that determination. Some viral illnesses may take longer before your child is well enough to return to school.
We also encourage you to strongly consider keeping your child home if they appear to be ill. By sending your child to school if you are concerned they are not feeling well, you are potentially exposing other students, and our staff, to a communicable illness. This ripple effect exposes classmates and then their siblings and other family members to the illness.
