24 Hour Communicable Illness Policy
KISD Administrative Regulation FFAD is in place to ensure the health and safety of all students and states that students who exhibit vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever 100 degrees or higher (Fahrenheit) must be excluded from school. Re-admittance is allowable as follows:
- Free of fever (greater than 100) for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication such as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen. Common trade names of products containing these medications include, but are not limited to, Tylenol, Motrin or Advil.
- Food and liquids have been tolerated for at least 24 hours without vomiting and/or diarrhea, and without the use of medication to relieve these symptoms.
- Students diagnosed with a contagious illness that is being treated with prescription medication must complete a minimum of 24 hours of the prescribed medication dosage prior to returning to school.
Always remember that handwashing with soap and water is the best way to stop the spread of infections!
Students Entering 7th Grade
7th Grade students will typically require three immunizations for the new school year. These are Tdap, Varicella, and Meningococcal. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to provide proof of these immunizations or state-approved exemptions before the start of the 2019-2020 school year. If immunization updates are not provided, it could delay getting your student's schedule. Immunization forms can be turned into the school all summer long between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
