COVID-19 and School Illness - more information HERE
What if my student becomes ill at school?
It is the expectation that every student leaving school due to illness is seen by the school nurse. This helps me keep track of health trends in the general school population.
I will call parents or guardians if a student needs to go home. If I am unable to reach a parent / guardian or the student requests, I allow them to use their cell phone. Students are NOT to use their cell phone to call/text a parent unless they are in the Health Office and have checked in with the nurse.
It is not unusual for students to feel better in the morning and then worse as the day goes along. The school is not equipped for prolonged care of your sick child. We request that you or an emergency contact will pick up your sick child within an hour that you are called. It is important for the school to have a list of local emergency contacts that are available to pick up your child in the event that we are not able to reach you. Please notify the school if there are changes to your contacts.
We need everyone's cooperation, to be better able to provide a healthy learning environment for our students and staff members. Thank you for your cooperation!
