Reminder from the School Nurses

Parents are required to report absences of students prior to the start of the school day. Please include in your voice message the details of your child’s absence (i.e. cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, doctor or dental appointment, etc.). If your child was seen by a physician  please provide a note stating the reason for the absence. Students absent for 3 or more consecutive days due to illness will be required to submit a written statement from the treating physician which includes the diagnosis for the extended absence.

If your child has a fever, they must be fever free without medication for 24 hours before they can return to school. If your child is taking an antibiotic, they must be on the antibiotic AT LEAST 24 hours before they may return to school.
