Illness or Injury Guidelines


If a child becomes ill or is injured at school, the parents will be notified unless we have been directed to inform a neighbor or guardian instead.  At no time will a child be sent from the school premises without the parent’s or guardian’s consent.


Please keep your child home if he/she is sick.  If there is a fever make sure your child’s temperature is normal for twenty-four (24) hours before permitting his/her return to school.  We need to be informed if your child develops a contagious disease. 

We would appreciate hearing if your child is hospitalized, has surgery, etc.
Students will be allowed to remain indoors for recess or P.E. only for serious reasons---Doctor’s orders, taking medication, etc.  Generally, if they are not well enough to go out and play, they are not well enough to be in school.
