Illness Policy

In the event a student becomes ill at school, they will be sent to the school nurse who will contact the parent. Students will be sent home if they have a fever of 100 or more, one episode of vomiting, two episodes of diarrhea, or signs of pinkeye. Students should not return to school until they are clear of the following for 24 hours: fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or other contagious symptoms. They must be fever free without fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol or Advil. If a student is sick and wants to leave school, he or she must go through the school nurse to call parents and for dismissal. 

Keep sick children home. Absences due to illness will be excused with a note from home. Parents are asked to notify the front office by email or call the school office at (615) 356-5600 by 8:45am when their child is going to be absent. At that time, requests for class assignments can be made and then picked up by 3:30pm. Please coordinate the make-up work pick-up time with the classroom teacher (K-5th).
