If you feel your child is sick or might be sick, we ask you to please keep them at home.  

If your child's temperature is 99.6 degrees or higher, it is considered a low-grade temperature.  Please keep your child at home as whatever your child has is now considered contagious.

A child must be fever free (no fever) and not vomiting, WITHOUT any medications  (Acetaminophen/ Tylenol, Ibuprofen/Motrin) in their system for at least 24 hours before they can return to school.

If your child suddenly comes down with the following symptoms:  fever, headache, muscle aches, sore throat, cough, fatigue, nausea or vomiting - we encourage you to contact your local physician and discuss your child's symptoms.

Do not forget to let your school secretary know that your child will not be in school.  If you would like to pick up any homework after school, please let the secretary know at that time.
