Illness Policy

Parents are asked to help control the spread of illness among children at school by following these guidelines.

Children should not attend school when:

  • They have a temperature over 98.6, or a sore, red throat

  • They have had a fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea within the past 24 hours 

  • They have a contagious condition such as pinkeye, impetigo, etc 

  • They have a cold with a hacking cough, even if they have no fever 

  • Parents do not want the child to play outside


A parent or guardian may be contacted if their child:

  • becomes increasingly ill during the day

  • sustains an injury

  • displays emotional distress and cannot be comforted in a reasonable amount of time
