    A child who is sick will not be able to perform well in school and is likely to spread the illness to other children and staff.  Our school policy states that you should not send your child to school if he/she has: fever in the past 24 hours,vomiting in the past 24 hours, diarrhea in the past 24 hours, chills, strep throat and pink eye( must have been taking an antibiotic for at least 24 hours before returning to school), bad cold with a very runny nose or bad cough, ,and head lice( must be nit free).

    Please notify the nurse if you child has a communicable disease or other medical condition or a change in a known medical condition.
