No child who arrives noticeably ill will be admitted to school for that day. Children are to be kept home when they show any of the following symptoms:

  1. Temperature more than ninety-nine degrees.
  2. Skin rash.
  3. Discharging eyes, a sore throat, profuse nasal discharge.
  4. Upset stomach or diarrhea.

    Children should remain home for twenty-four (24) hours after displaying any of the above symptoms.
     
  5. Any child who has head lice must be kept at home until proper treatment is administered and all nits are removed. A child that has been treated for head lice cannot return to school until he or she has been checked by a school representative indicating that the child is no longer infested with head lice. That means you must remove all dead nits or eggs before they are seen at school.

A child who becomes ill at school will be isolated from the rest of the group, and the parents will be notified immediately. An ill child should be picked up promptly. The child is required to remain at home for twenty-four hours after leaving school.
