Communicable Diseases

  • The health of our students is important to us, and we work hard to keep the school environment clean and to partner with families to teach and model good hygiene practices. We also remain in close contact with local health agencies to stay alerted to any serious outbreaks of communicable illnesses.

    Along with general cleaning, top custodial priorities include: daily cleaning and sanitizing of restrooms, door handles and other high-contact areas like elevators, buttons for automatic doors and stairway handrails.

    Stay home when sick
    One of the most important things you can do to stop the spread of germs is keep sick people at home. Sore throat, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or a temperature of 100 degrees F or higher are reasons to stay home. Your child should be fever-free for 24 hours without medicine before returning to school. Also consider whether your child is rested and alert enough to learn, pay attention in class and participate in all school activities.
