Parents may be called to come and pick up their child during the day if he/she becomes ill/injured.  Some of the criteria used to determine if your child will be sent home or should remain at home are as follows:

  1. TEMPERATURE:  Your child will be sent home for a temp of 99.6 with symptoms, such as headache, sore throat, nausea/vomiting, rash.  A student with a temperature of 100 degrees and above with no symptoms will also be sent home.
  2. Students should remain at home until temp. has been normal for 24 hours without the aid of medication.
  3. VOMITING/DIARRHEA:  Students with vomiting and/or diarrhea should stay home until they are free from symptoms for 24 hours.
  4. INJURY:  Any injury with unusual swelling, discoloration, or pain.  Cuts which appear to require stitches or dental injuries.
  5. HEAD LICE:  Students with head lice will be sent home and will not be allowed to ride the bus or return to the classroom until checked and cleared by the school nurse.
  6. K.S.A. 65-122:  These guidelines, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control, will also be used in regard to specific contagious diseases and infections.
  7. The nurse will use the above guidelines and their professional judgment to make decisions regarding the health of your child and other students enrolled in the school.

A sick child cannot learn effectively and is unable to participate in class as usual.  Keeping the student home prevents the spread of illness in the school and allows him/her the opportunity to rest and recover completely from their illness.  Please do not hesitate to call your school nurse with any questions.
