Each school is equipped with a health room. The health room is designed to treat minor injuries and to act as a temporary "waiting station" for children who have become ill during the school day. Should a student become ill, persons designated on the enrollment card will be contacted to pick up the student. It is most important that all telephone numbers be completed on the  "Health Information and Emergency Consent" card that parents receive at the beginning of each school year, and be updated immediately if changes occur during the school year.

Should I Keep My Child Home?
The following guidelines should be used to help determine when your child should stay home from school due to illness:
  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours. Students are allowed readmission to school when they have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • Itchy, red eyes with discharge
  • Unknown rash
  • Ringworm of the scalp (until treatment has started)
  • Head lice (until treatment has started)
  • Jaundice
To protect your children at school, students that are assessed with any of the signs and symptoms listed above will be sent home.
