We are seeing an increased number of children coming to the nurse’s office at the very beginning of the day with either a fever or bad cough. We ask that if your child complains of not feeling well in the morning, please take their temperature before leaving home. If they have an elevated temperature of 100 degrees without medication, or have vomited within the past 24 hours, district policy is that they cannot be in school. In addition, if the school calls you to report that your child is sick or has a fever, we do ask you or a designated person to come as soon as possible. We do not have a place for these children to wait when they are sick and they, of course, cannot go back to the classroom without exposing other students.
