Student Health Policy

If a child is too sick to go out at recess and lunch, he/she is too sick to be at school. This includes if children are too sick to be at school, then they are too sick to participate on field trips.

Sick children need to stay home until they are feeling better, and their symptoms subside. In fairness to our other students and staff members, please do not send your child to school if there are definite signs of ill health in the morning. We do not have the facilities nor the personnel to care for sick children. Good health is necessary for effective learning. Our policy is to get sick children home as soon as possible. Our practice is to call parents and/or emergency contacts and have the student picked up.

We appreciate your cooperation in regard to our student health policy.
