Please keep an ill child at home. A student should not return to school until at least 24 hours after his/her temperature has re- turned to normal and any vomiting has stopped.
When health reasons make it impossible for a child to participate in outdoor or PE activities for any period of time, he/she may be excused with a written request from the doctor.
Health regulations place great limits as to what may be done to treat school injuries or illness. The school staff may not apply or administer any medication without written notification from a physician or dentist. Unless there are extenuating circumstances, medication will be administered by office personnel only.
In cases of scrapes and bruises (minor injury—wash and cover), mild soap and water will be used to clean the wound. We will not apply any ointments or creams. If a child is injured while at school, parents/guardians will be notified of the situation. Paramedic units will be called immediately if the injury is serious.
No child will be sent home unless a parent, older member of the family or other designated adult is able to pick up the child from school.
