In order to prevent the spread of communicable diseases and to ensure rapid recovery with a minimum of after-effects, children should be kept out of school when they have the symptoms indicating that such a condition exists. Whenever possible, the school will notify parents of known exposure of their child to a communicable disease.
Children who are ill with any communicable disease may be excluded from school and may be required to bring a doctor’s certificate on return indicating that their illness is no longer communicable.
If a child becomes ill or meets with an accident during the school day, every attempt will be made to contact the parents. Please be sure that the office has on file such necessary information as the home and business telephone numbers, and the name and telephone number of a person to be called in the event the child’s parent or guardian cannot be reached.
