During the months of colder weather, we see an increase of students experiencing symptoms of illness including fever, cough and sore throat which are often seen in COVID-19, RSV and influenza. If your child is feeling ill, we request they remain at home until they are well enough to return to school.

During the months of colder weather, we see an increase of students experiencing symptoms of illness including fever, cough and sore throat which are often seen in COVID-19, RSV and influenza. 

If your child is feeling ill, we request they remain at home until they are well enough to return to school. If your child has a temperature above 100 degrees, vomiting, diarrhea or is not well enough to participate in school, please keep your child home and seek the advice of a healthcare professional as needed.

Students may return to school when:

  • The student has been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications
  • At least 24 hours have passed since their last episode of vomiting or diarrhea
  • The student feels well enough to participate in class

We continue to keep our classrooms, buildings and shared spaces clean to help reduce the spread of illness. 

We ask your family to practice the following safety protocols: 

  • Wear a face covering for 10 days following an exposure to COVID-19 (recommended)
  • Frequent handwashing with soap and water
  • Cover coughs and sneezes; do not touch your face with unwashed hands
  • Stay home from school, child care, sports and other activities if you are feeling ill

If you have questions regarding your child’s health or the district’s illness protocols, please contact your school health office. Our priority remains the health and safety of students and staff.                                                        

Thank you for your help in keeping our school community healthy.
