Illness and School Attendance

We are moving into the time of the year when we will see more student illness. For this reason, it is important to remind our patrons about the policy concerning illness and school attendance. In the fall of 2009, the school board approved certain policies regarding fever in students.  If a student is determined to have a fever at school, that student will be sent home and needs to remain out of school until the student is free of fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication such as Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin).  This also applies if parents discover their child has a fever at home outside of school hours. Fever is only one criteria for determining that a child is ill, but it is a crucial one in determining that a child may have an illness that is contagious and more serious than a common cold. We ask that parents adhere to this policy and not send students back to school too soon. For more information see the "From the School Nurse" page under the district tab.

Attendance Policy

If your student is absent from school for any reason, a phone call or note from a parent or guardian is required for the absence to be an excused absence.  If your student needs to leave school early and will be driving themselves OR be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian, you will need to call the school in advance for the student to leave early with that person.
