Notes from the nurse


With cold and flu season upon us, please keep the following guidelines in mind when deciding whether or not to send your child to school. This will help to control the spread of infectious diseases at school and allow your child to be available for learning.

Students should remain home for the following reasons:

  • For a temperature greater than 100 degrees. Children should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school and not taking fever reducing medication to control symptoms.
  • If your child has vomited or had persistent diarrhea within 24 hours. Children may return after it has been 24 hours without having diarrhea or vomiting. 
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye) should be diagnosed by a physician and should only return to school when advised by a physician. Please provide a physician’s note at that time stating they are cleared.
  • Any contagious condition or signs of communicable disease should be held out of school until they are cleared to return to school by a physician. Please provide a physician’s note at that time stating they are cleared.


Please continue to remind your child of the importance of frequent hand washing, healthy eating, covering coughs and sneezing, and proper use and disposal of tissues during this cold and flu season.


Medication Policy reminder: If you would like your child to have over the counter medications in school you must have a med order permit completed. You can print one online from the district website, or have your child pick up a copy in the nurse’s office. You must provide your own bottle of medication that will be labeled and kept safely in the nurse’s office as we do not have enough stock to supply the school.


Please feel free to contact the Health Office with any questions or concerns. Have a safe and healthy flu season!
