Student Illnesses

A parent/guardian will be called whenever a student has a fever over 100 degrees, diarrhea or vomiting, significant pain, repeated complaints, or anything out of the ordinary.

Please remember that if students are sent home with a fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before they return. This means that they should not return the next day. The 24 hour period begins from the time they no longer have a fever.  If you are not sure if you should keep your child out of school due to illness, click here:   ILLNESS GUIDELINES.
