The following is important information regarding school absences:

Due to our ongoing efforts to assure the health of all students, we will be changing our absence procedure slightly to maintain surveillance of student illnesses. When calling your child in, please indicate if they are absent due to an Influenza –Like Illness, any other illness, or if there is another reason for absence such as an appointment.

Symptoms of an Influenza‐Like‐Illness are:

  • Fever greater than 100 degrees
  • Body aches
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Respiratory congestion
  • Diarrhea and vomiting in some cases

If your child is experiencing any of the above symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider keep them home from school until they are free of a fever for over 24 hours without the use of fever‐reducing medications.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
