Student Illness

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 at any time within the last 24 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.
