Student Health and Medication Policies/Procedures
Students who are ill should be picked up immediately or no more THAN AN HOUR AFTER NOTIFICATION). If any student is ill, injured, or excused for any reason during the school hours, she/he must be signed out in the school office. We strongly urge that parents or guardians not send their children back to school too soon after an illness. Please make sure the child is well enough to stay in school.
Getting well again, not completing work, should be the focus while keeping a sick child home from school.
- Before returning to school, for the well-being of the child and in concern for classmates, the sick child should be fever free, vomit free, and diarrhea free for a 24-hour period.
- When the student returns to school, he/she is required to bring a written note from the parent/guardian, which will be kept on file. Diocesan policy states students who exceed 30 days of absences may not be promoted to the next grade unless arrangements have been made with the school.
It is important for the health of all students and staff that a child does not attend school when sick. The following guidelines are offered as appropriate reasons to keep your child home from school until his or her symptoms are gone or a health care provider has cleared your child to return to school. Please keep your child home if they have any of the following:
- Conjunctivitis/Pinkeye (requires a doctor’s note that the student may return to school and is not contagious)
- Cough that is persistent and productive with thick or constant nasal drainage. (Exception: may attend school for mild cold symptoms)
- Diarrhea (student should not return to school until symptom-free for at least 24 hours after the last episode and tolerating solid food).
- Fever of 100.4 F. or higher (student must be fever-free, without fever reducing-medication such as Tylenol or Advil/Motrin for 24 hours before returning to school).
- Flu or Flu-like illness (fever, body aches, chills, cough, sore throat, headache, fatigue). Student must be fever-free, without fever- reducing medication such as Tylenol or Advil/Motrin for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
- Impetigo (student may return to school 24 hours after treatment is started. Lesions should be covered to prevent spread of infection to others).
- Rash of unknown origin and/or the area is too large to be covered by a band aid (requires a doctor’s note to return to school)
- Sore throat with fever (student must be fever-free without fever- reducing medication such as Tylenol or Advil/Motrin for at least 24 hours before returning to school).
- Strep Throat (student may return to school 24 hours after antibiotic treatment has been started and is fever-free.
- Vomiting (student should not return to school until symptom-free for at least 24 hours after the last episode and tolerating solid food).
