Student Illnesses

Doctor's Notes

Doctor's notes are required for children who must attend school with casts or crutches. A doctor's note is also required for a child to be excused from Physical Education class as well as to be readmitted to school after a serious injury or serious illness. These requirements are to ensure your child's safety.

Student Sickness

If a student becomes ill at school, parents will be contacted immediately. If we are unable to reach you, it is imperative that we have alternate phone numbers of others authorized to take care of your child. Small scrapes and cuts will be cleaned and bandaged in the office. Unless the student is obviously sick, he/she will be encouraged to remain at school. If your child has a fever or is throwing up they should not come to school.

If a serious injury occurs fire medics will be called.

If a parent has signed consent for specific emergency medical treatment and transport on their child's registration card, the school will take appropriate action, but at parent's/guardian's expense.

Procedures for Picking up Assignments When a Child is Sick

1. Parents should contact the office several hours in advance.

2. Office personnel will notify the teacher.

3. The teacher will send books and assignments to the office.

4. If brothers, sisters, friends, etc. are to collect assignments, they should pick them up in the office after school.

IMPORTANT!!-All telephone numbers must be kept up-to-date so that we can reach you in case of an emergency.
