Please review the Tips From the Health Office below before sending children to school.
Sending children after giving Tylenol is not sufficient to prevent infection from the class. Students should remain home until symptoms subside.

From the Health Office
A comprehensive health service is provided in accordance with state law and the Board of Education policy. Incase of an accident or illness in school, parents/guardians are notified of the health emergency so that the child may be taken home or to a physician. The school cannot provide transportation. In extreme emergencies, the local First Aid Squad will be called.
Tips From the Health Office
Keep your child home if he or she has a fever, vomiting/diarrhea or a bad cold or cough. It is essential that children with communicable diseases be kept home until the contagious period is over and their physician allows them to return to school. A note from the doctor is highly recommended.
Please report all contagious disease (strep throat, pink eye, scarlet fever, chicken pox) or contagious conditions to the school nurse promptly. If your child exhibits a skin rash of undetermined origin, please consult your physician before sending the child to school.
