• Since many of you have left questions on the attendance line about when your children can return to school following illness:


    ·         Fever: Keep your child home until the temperature has been normal for twenty four hours ( this means a temperature below 100 degrees, and without the use of medication to lower it)


    ·         Vomiting/ Diarrhea: Keep your child home at least twenty four hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea, no fever, and able to tolerate regular food.


    ·         Congestion: For congestion, persistent cough, and/or sore throat without fever. Consult your physician for advisement.


    ·         Strep Throat: The student must have a return to school noted from your physician and be on antibiotics for 48 hours prior to return to school.


    ·         Conjunctivitis “pink eye”: If child’s eyes are clear within 48 hours he or she may return to school. A note from your physician on when the child can return is suggested.


    ·         Attendance Calls:  Please try to remember to call the nurse before 8:30am to report your child’s absence. Do not leave absence calls on the teacher’s voicemail.




    The guidelines are in place to promote a healthy environment for the students and well as the staff.
