Wellness Policy

Please keep your child home if he/she has any of these symptoms:

  • Vomiting and Diarrhea: If vomiting occurs, please keep your child at home for at least 24 hours after he/she is able to keep food down. A child with diarrhea should be kept home for at least 24 hours.
  • Pain: Please keep your child at home if he/she exhibits persistent earache, toothache, headache, or stomachache.
  • Fever: A fever is a warning that all is not right. The best way to check for fever is with a thermometer. Please do not bring the child until he/she has been free of fever for 24 hours.
  • Rash: A rash may be the first sign of one of the childhood’s many illnesses, such as chicken pox. A rash or “spots” may cover the entire body or may appear only in one area. Please do not bring a child with a rash until your doctor has given permission for
  • them to return to school.
  • Cold, Cough, and Sore Throat: A child with a “heavy” cold or a hacking cough belongs at home, even if there is no fever. Colored nasal discharge indicates an infection and the child should be kept at home. If any member of your family has been diagnosed with Strep Throat, please be sure that your child is not contagious before returning to school.
  • Immunizations: Please, be sure your child’s immunizations are up to date.
