    call the office and send a note. NO child will be
    allowed to enter the classroom without an admit
    slip from the office.

    tardy. They must have a tardy slip from the
    office to be admitted to class.

  • Do not send your child to school if any of these
    symptoms or signs are present in the previous 24
  • Elevated temperature--100? or greater
  • Acute cold, sore throat, or persistent cough
  • Vomiting, nausea, or severe abdominal pain
  • Repeated diarrhea

    or eyes resulting from contagious condition
  • Red, inflamed or discharging eyes

  • There will be times when it is difficult to tell
    when your child is too ill to go to school.
    Sometimes there is the worry that he or she will
    miss important schoolwork. Like adults, children
    have different tolerances for discomfort and
    illness. Even with a common cold, some are able
    to function fine while others are miserable. If
    your child is coughing continuously, he or she
    wont be able to concentrate, and will disrupt
    others in the class. A day of rest at home
    combined with lots of fluids speeds recovery. If
    you decide to send your child to school when he
    or she is on the borderline of being ill, it is a
    good idea to call the school clinic or send a
    note to the teacher. Be sure to let the school
    know where you can be contacted in case your
    childs condition worsens.
