How Can You Help Your Child Do Their Best In School?
Make sure they have breakfast!
Breakfast helps fuel the energy a child uses to learn. We encourage all students to make use of the school breakfast program.
Pay attention to any complaints of illness or signs and symptoms of illness in your child.
If a student has a fever or is not feeling well, it is reflected in their classroom participation and learning.
Inform the school health office of any health concerns you may have for your child. We will be glad to help monitor your child's health status.
A child should have a temperature of less than 99.0 for 24 hours before returning to school if they have been home with an illness.
You will be asked to pick up your child from school as soon as possible if your child has any of these health related concerns:
- Temperature of 100.0F or greater
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Live head lice
You may also be contacted if there are concerns about skin rashes or signs of conjunctivitis (pink-eye).
Rashes may appear for a variety of reasons. It may be a contagious bacteria or fungal infection, or a harmless skin sensitivity. In any case, the health office staff may need to contact you for further information. If a rash has open sores associated with it that have oozing or discharge, you may be asked to bring your child home until it is healed or the child has been seen by your health care provider to determine what is causing it.
