Keeping your child home

The school nurses work on the assumption that you have made the decision your child is well enough to attend school.  Please consider keeping your child at home if he or she: has a fever of 100 degrees or higher (without being medicated), has been vomiting, has a severe sore throat, or other symptoms that would prevent him or her from participating in class. Please contact your school nurse with questions or concerns regarding sending your student to school.  Click here for more suggested sick day guidelines.
