I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy.The purpose of this letter is to advise you to keep your children home if they have vomited, had diarrhea or have had a fever of 99.5 or above, within 24 hours prior to attending school. Unfortunately it is the time of year that many of us are being exposed to the flu, strep and many other contagious illnesses. I have had to send children home right away after they have entered the school as they have been exhibiting the symptoms listed above, and should have not come to school. We as a staff have been encouraging our students wash their hands regularly. frequent hand washing prevents the spreading of illness within the school and home.
I am sending children home with the above symptoms as the current strain of flu has proven quite serious even deadly in some cases for those with weakened immune systems, children and the elderly, and has even proven to be serious for those without any health issues. Students sent home with vomiting, diarrhea or a fever, must be free of symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school. For example a student sent home on Monday can return on Wednesday if they have not had any additional symptoms 24 hours prior to return to school.
I am also reminding parents and guardians that emergency contacts must be on the current emergency form. You must also provide a license or other picture by the parent, guardian or contact listed on the emergency form to pick up your children. Please look at our website for additional information about colds, flu and the difference between the two.
