  • Please be considerate of the other children, teachers and families. If your child develops any of these symptoms, we will call you and ask you to take your child out of school. We strongly suggest you consider plans for unexpected sick care for your child before he/she becomes ill.
  • Children diagnosed with contagious infections need a medical doctor’s note stating the diagnosis, medications and date the child may return to school. Contagious infections may include: strep throat, ringworm, scabies, conjunctivitis (pink eye), fifth disease and scarlet fever. Parents of a child prescribed crutches by a physician need to notify the principal and school nurse before the child returns to school.
