ILLNESS POLICY
It’s definitely that time of year around here…coughs and sniffles and tissues (and sleeve wiping and nose picking) galore! We understand that many sniffles and coughs last and last even when the child feels well, so we completely understand having kids come to school with runny noses and coughs. However…
Please do not send your child to school if they don’t feel well, if they have had a fever, vomiting, diarrhea or any other contagious illness in the past 24 hours. If your child comes to school and complains of feeling ill, we will call you to come get them. If your child is at school, we will assume they are well enough to participate normally in their school routine – including recess. We understand that this can be very difficult for working parents, but we really appreciate you considering the health of our other students and our small staff when making the decision to keep your child at home. Thanks so much for your help with this. Sending healthy thoughts your way!
