General Measures of Prevention
A student with symptoms that may indicate a communicable disease will be sent to the health room for first aid.
The parent/guardian will be contacted and asked to pick up the child if any of the following are present:
• Fever – oral temperature of 100˚ F or greater
• Red, draining eye(s)
• Any symptom(s) causing great discomfort for the student (e.g., severe cough)
A student may return to school after illness under the following conditions:
• Fever-free without anti-fever medication for 24 hours
• No vomiting for 24 hours
• No diarrhea for 24 hours
• Note from health care provider indicating no longer contagious
Parents or Guardians must call the school (253) 530-4106 if a student is expected to be tardy or absent. If this call is not made on the day of the absence, parents or guardians must send a note to school including the student’s first and last name, grade level, date(s) of absence, and reason for absence.
