General Information

Injuries
If your child needs to be restricted from physical education, the health office requires a note from the physician. If an injury has been sustained, that requires crutches, a cast, splinting or any other supportive device, please have your child report to the health office on return to school. A doctor's note explaining the nature of the injury and necessary restrictions is required. When the injury is healed, another note is required, stating that the child is cleared to participate in PE and sports. 



When Should My Child Stay Home?
Following are some guidelines to help decide when to keep your child home:

1) A child with vomiting and/or diarrhea can be very uncomfortable. If your child has these symptoms it is best for them to stay home until the illness passes. Your child must be 24 hours free from vomiting or diarrhea before they may return to school.

2) Fever is a temperature of 100 or higher. If your child has a fever they must stay at home until they have a normal temperature for 24 hours without taking any medication. A child with a temperature of 100 or higher will be sent home from school.

3) A MILD cold should not be a reason to keep your child home. If your child is not acting right, is continually coughing, sneezing, complaining of a sore throat or has a fever, he or she should be kept at home.

4) Strep throat is highly contagious, you must keep your child home until they have been on antibiotics for 24 hours. In addition, they must be fever free for 24 hours.
