In order to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, please keep a child home if he or she has:

  • a runny nose, sneezing and coughing
  • a red sore throat
  • an earache
  • unexplained skin rashes
  • pink eyes
  • headache
  • fever during the past 24 hours
  • vomiting or diarrhea during the past 24 hours

Please exercise consideration for others when deciding whether to send your child to school.  Remember, a child who is ill will not function well in class anyway.
