Control of Communicable Diseases

  • Your child's health is important to me. Hygiene and good health habits are encouraged and emphasized throughout the year. Please call me whenever you are not certain about sending your child to school. School is no place for a sick child. The learning process is compromised and other students are placed at a potential risk by exposure to that child's illness. Students should not come to school if they are experiencing a fever of 100 degrees F or higher, diarrhea, vomiting, rash, deep cough or a communicable disease such as strep throat, impetigo or conjunctivitis. First aid and medical care provided by the school nurse are primarily for sudden illnesses, chronic health conditions, an injury that occurs during the school day, or for treatment as directed by the family physician.
