PLEASE do not send a sick child to school. Parents are asked to wait until the child is 24 hours fever-free (without the use of fever controlling medication) before the child returns to school. If the child has a contagious disease, such as chicken pox or strep throat, the school must be notified.
Parents whose child becomes ill at school will be contacted to pick up the child. It is important that parents and guardians supply the school with their telephone number and alternate phone numbers where someone can be reached in their absence.
When your child is well enough to return to school, please put a note in their backpack explaining that their absence was due to illness.
