What is the policy for a sick child?

Sick Child Policy—The fall and winter months bring us to the reality of facing illnesses in our daily schedule.  And children are no exception!  You are faced with decisions about the signs of illness and infection you may notice in your child.  Listed below are some criteria for excluding an ill or infected child from our school:

  • A temperature of 100° or more in the past 24 hours—your child must be fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducers before they may return to school
  • Vomiting in the past 24 hours
  • Diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • Bacterial infection (strep throat, pink eye, etc.) that has not been treated with an antibiotic for 24 hours,  and in the case of pink eye if either eye has drainage
  • A cough with congestion and excessive discharge
  • Communicable disease such as chicken pox, impetigo, etc.--a child with chicken pox must remain out of school one week after onset or when all lesions are crusted
  • Any ailment that would override your child’s learning
