 If your child is not feeling well, your physician is the best person to consult about whether they can go to school. Common sense, con­cern for your child's well-being, and the possibility of infecting classmates should all contribute to the decision about whether your child should stay home.

As general guidelines, keep them home if:
  • They have a fever
  • They are not well enough to participate in class
  • You think they may be contagious to other children
If your child has been ill but is feeling better, yet has still awak­ened with a minor problem, such as a runny nose or slight head­ache, you can send them to school if none of the three circumstances listed above are present. Even so, make sure the school and your child have a phone number where you can be reached during the day if more serious symptoms develop and they need to return home or need greater medical attention.  Thank you for your partnership!
