Below please see the guidelines for school and illness. We have been pretty lucky in our classroom so far and I am hoping to stay that way! Please do what is best for your child when making a decision about school or home for the day. We always want every child at school when they are feeling up to be here.
It is important that we minimize the exposure to viruses or symptoms of illness. Students should not come to school if they are ill. Your child will be more comfortable and will recuperate faster if he/she can stay home when he/she is ill. Please do NOT send your child to school if your child displays symptoms of illness.
To minimize the amount of illness, all teachers have been encouraged to build in additional opportunities for hand washing, especially before lunch, after recess, and after activities where students are using their hands (Unified Arts classes).
Symptoms of illness are defined as follows:
*Fever of 100 degrees or more
*Red, Runny eyes, Sneezing, or green and or runny discharge from the nose
*Swelling and/or tenderness of glands
*Abdominal Cramps and/or Diahrrea
*Rash (any skin erruption, particularly if red, swollen and or draining)
If a student develops any of the above symptoms while at school, parents will be called to pick up the student from school.
