If a student becomes ill or injured at school, he/she should report to the clinic as soon as possible. Minor first aid may be administered if indicated in the case of an injury. If a student has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher while at school, they will be sent home. For an illness or injury of any serious nature the parent will be notified. If a life squad is needed school personnel will ride to the hospital with the student and stay until a parent or guardian can arrive.
Keep your child home from school if your child:
-Was sick with vomiting or watery diarrhea within the last 24 hours.
-Has a fever of 100 degrees or higher. Please keep home until your child goes fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for 72 hours.
-Is being treated for a bacterial infection and has not had 24 hours of antibiotics.
-Has a lasting cough or cold with fever and body aches.
-Has crusted or matted eyelashes and/or green, yellow, or white sticky eye drainage along with eye redness. Please note: your child needs to see the doctor for medication and can return to school with treatment or a doctor note.
When your child has a cold please remember:
-Give the school a telephone number where you can be reached if your child gets worse.
-Remind your child to cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing. Teach your child to cough or sneeze into their bent arm (inside of elbow).
-Teach your child to wash hands often. Encourage good hand washing at school and at home. It’s the best way to stop the spread of illness or disease!
**Clinic staff will notify you of clinic visits for serious injuries and illnesses and for any head injuries.
