    Q:  When should I keep my child home from school?

    A:  Please keep children home if ANY of the these symptoms are present:  temperature 100.0 or above, vomiting, diarrhea, red or draining eyes, undiagnosed rash, severe sore throat, cough or headache. Children must be fever free, vomiting or diarrhea free for 24 hours without the use of medication, like Tylenol or Motrin, before they can return to school.

    Q:  What do I do when my child is absent from school?  What do I do if my child has a medical appointment?

    A:  Attendance is taken each day at 10:00 am. If your child leaves campus before, or comes in after, 10:00 am they are considered absent for the day. Please use school dismissal manager to report your child's absence every time they are absent. In addition, send a note when they return to school. This may be a written note, email, or doctor’s note if you had a medical appointment. A doctor's note is required after 5 days.

    If your child has a medical appointment during the school day and attends school before or after the appointment, a note from the health care provider must be submitted when the student returns to school. This ensures the student can be counted as present for the day of the appointment.

    Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his/her education. Students and parents should make every effort to avoid unnecessary absences.
