Exclusion Guidelines

Many times students become ill at school and display a variety of symptoms which have not been diagnosed by a doctor, but are serious enough to warrant school personnel sending the student home and recommending follow-up evaluation with a physician. It will be recommended that students be sent home from school if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or more
  • Persistent diarrhea/vomiting
  • Severe coughing causing croupy, whooping sounds
  • Severe wheezing or respiratory distress
  • Tearing, irritation, redness of the lining of the eyelid, swelling, discharge of pus, sensitivity to light
  • Rash of unknown origin
  • Severe sore throat or difficulty swallowing
  • Infected areas of the skin with yellow crusty areas
  • Evidence of live lice
  • Serious or uncontrolled bleeding/serious injury

Please have a plan in place should your child become sick or injured while at school. All contact phone numbers should be kept current as well as custody information and emergency contact names and phone numbers. We appreciate your assistance with this matter and look forward to working with you and your child!
