Guidelines for Healthy Students
To help keep your child healthy, please:
- make sure they have a good nutritious breakfast and lunch;
- encourage them to drink plenty of water during the school day;
- keep your child home if they have a 100o temperature or higher, have diarrhea, or have been vomiting. If your child experiences any of these ailments at school, they will be sent home and will not be permitted back to school until they are fever free for 24 hours or symptom free. Fever free is being without fever for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing agents such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
- If your child contracts a contagious illness such as strep throat, pink eye, chicken pox, or head lice, they may not return to school unless they have been medically treated and are symptom free and fever free.
Please notify the Health Office staff at (520) 696-6804, if your child has been diagnosed with any contagious illness so it can be noted.
