Health Office Guidelines

School is no place for a sick child. Please do not send your child to school if he/she has diarrhea, vomiting, a fever, rash , deep cough, or a communicable disease such as chickenpox, strep throat, pink eye or lice. You will be notified if your child becomes ill enough to be sent home from school, sustains more than a minor injury, or has an emergency. It is the parent’s responsibility to make arrangements to pick up an ill or injured child as promptly as possible. We suggest that you have someone listed on your emergency card in case you are not available or can not leave work. Any student having any of the following will need to be sent home: vomiting, having two bouts of diarrhea, evidence of possible pink eye, a rash. or with a temperature of 100.0 degrees. A parent or guardian must pick these students up promptly.

Children are not permitted to walk home when ill or injured per district policy. If a child is sent home with fever, diarrhea or vomiting they are not to come to school the following day. Twenty four hours "symptom free" would not be possible by the following day. Children must be fever free (without medication) for 24 hours prior to their to return to school. Children must be diarrhea and vomiting free (without medication) 24 hours prior to returning to return to school also.

REGARDING TYLENOL- The health office does not automatically dispense acetaminophen to students. (Students in Jr. High and High school may have signed permission for acetaminophen.) If a student should require short-term, over-the-counter medication, the medication must be brought to school by an adult and paperwork must be completed. Please call with any questions. 

The Nurse is available to assist students with illness and accidents that occur at school. Parents are requested to notify the Health Office if a student has a health problem.
