Children who are tired or ill do not do well in the classroom. If your child is ill, please keep them at home. This helps protects other students, their parents, and the school staff. Keep your child home under the following conditions:
Fever: A morning temperature of 100 degrees F or higher or an achy, pale or tired child. Do not give fever medication and bring your child to school as it may cover up symptoms as well as expose other people to a possible contagious disease. A child should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
Runny Nose: Yellow or green mucus
Sore Throat: Swollen or tender glands and a fever of 100 degrees or higher
Cough: A wet or wheezy cough
Vomiting and Diarrhea: Two or more episodes or has had one in the past 24 hours and feels tired or ill
Eyes: Non-allergy symptoms like swelling, redness, swelling, pus, inflammation, “pink eye”, itching, etc. A child must be on medication for 24 hours and have clear eyes before returning to school.
Communicable Diseases: Notify your physician and the school if your child has chicken pox, measles, strep throat, or mumps or any other communicable disease. At the first indication of a communicable disease, your child should be kept at home and away from other children. Your child cannot return to school until the contagious period has passed, as directed by your physician.
Medication: The California State Health Department requires that all medications - prescription, nonprescription and homeopathic - be administered with a prior written directive from a doctor or signed parental consent. All necessary medication must be given to the school office with written instructions. Students may not self-administer medications.
