Student Illness Guidelines

In an effort to reduce everyone’s exposure to illness, please do not send your child to school if they are ill. We realize that the morning routine can be hectic and it is sometimes difficult to determine if your child is actually sick enough to stay home from school; however, we ask that if you suspect your child may be ill, please keep them home. If later in the morning or afternoon they are feeling better and have not had a temperature, you can bring them to school at that time. Often, kids will say they don’t feel well at home but their parent wants them to try school. Sending a sick child to school exposes others to illness. Please do not do that.
