There are times that students come to school with a medical condition that may be contagious. The school district has rules relating to these conditions. You will find a brief summary of these conditions in the school calendar.
When a student is sent home with a possible contagious conditions, such as fever, vomiting and or/diarrhea, they should be kept at home until 24 hours after the symptoms have disappeared. In conditions that require medication, they should be on the medication 24 hours before they return to school. These are conditions like conjunctivitis (pink eye), impetigo and strept throat etc.
Sometimes students can have a problem with pediculosis (head lice). When this is found by the nurse, the student will be sent home. They may come back to school when they have been treatment with an accepted medication and all nits (eggs), have been removed from the hair. The parent will need to bring the student in to school and wait until the nurse determines that the student is free of nits.
