Students who become ill at school are sent to the clinic for evaluation by the campus nurse. The campus nurse will call the parent if a student needs to go home or needs to talk personally to the parent. An ill student must leave school through the clinic.
Please call the school nurse if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious condition such as pink eye, strep throat, chicken pox, head lice, impetigo, ringworm, flu or has vomiting and/or diarrhea.
