When Should I Call My Child Out?

  • If your child has a temperature greater than 100 degrees and any other symptoms (cough, body aches, GI problem), please keep your child home and call the attendance line. When calling, please provide your child's name, grade and reason for absence. Please also leave a number where you can be contacted.

    Homework is available via the teacher's websites.

    Your child needs to be fever-free for 24 hours—without the use of fever-reducing medication—before they can return to school.

    If your child has been vomiting due to illness, they should be vomit-free for 24hrs and be able to keep food down prior to returning to school.  

    If you have questions, please contact the health office prior to dropping your child off at school.
