- Please log in to your parent portal and review/update your emergency contacts each marking period or as numbers change. Be sure to list multiple emergency contacts in the event you cannot be reached. Have someone close to home available during school hours. A backup plan is needed for when a child needs to be sent home sick.

Please keep your child home for 24 hours AFTER they have expierenced vomiting or diarrhea.
If fever greater than 100 or above they should remain home from school for 24 hours AFTER they are fever free.
If your child has a cold or upper respiratory infection and they are not able to cover their mouth and/or take care of their own body fluids, they should not come to school.
Your child will be sent home from school if they appear to be a hazard to the health of OTHERS and or if they are unable to function in class.
Just because your child does not register a fever does not mean they are not sick.
If you think your child is sick please keep them home to observe them.

wash your hands
use tissues and throw the tissues in the trash after use
