Request to Keep Extra Clothing in Backpacks

Because of the possibility of clothing becoming soiled at school, and because supplies are very limited in the clinic, it is requested that your child keep a clean set of clothing in his/her backpack.  The clothing should be examined periodically to make sure that they are appropriate for the climate.  If your child has a urine or BM accident at school and no clothing is in his/her backpack, you could be notified to bring clothing for your child to change into.  If your child has symptoms of illness, you will be notified so that arrangements can be made for your child to go home to recover, and minimize the spread of infection to other classmates.

Medication at School

If a student requires medication administration during school hours, parents need to bring the medication to the clinic, where permission forms will be completed and signed by parents. Students are not allowed to transport medications to or from school.


Illness and Attendance

While we want to strive for perfect attendance, we know there are times when students are truly ill and need to stay home.  To minimize the spread of illness to other students and school faculty, please remember:

If your child becomes sick and develops a fever, the school’s policy is that they must remain home until they are fever free for a full 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medications).  Students should also remain out of school if experiencing vomiting or diarrhea or if they have other contagious illnesses.
