Dress Code Reminder from our Family Resource Guide

Has Your Child Had A Fever or Been Ill? Please Note The Illness Guidelines Below From our Family Resource Guide

Please help us create a safe, healthy environment for all of our students and teachers. We ask for your help in maintaining the safe environment by keeping your child home any time he or she is ill or becoming ill. It can be a tough call but if we all adhere to the guidelines, we can help make these days happen less for everyone. We will continue to rely on our professional medical partners at the Ottawa County Health Department for their most up-to-date guidance for K-12 Schools.

In general per the Ottawa County Health Department, these include:

  • Fever within the previous 24 hours, must be fever free without the use of medications for 24 hours.
  • ANY vomiting or diarrhea in the past 36 hours. Must be completely symptom free without the use of medications for 36 hours. If they still are not eating normally, they shouldn’t return to school.
  • Any symptoms of diseases (COVID-19, scarlet fever, measles, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough, etc.)
  • Runny nose with any colored discharge
  • Excessive coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Any unexplained rash
  • Pink eye
  • Head lice – Child should be treated and free of all nits/live bugs prior to returning to school. The following link does an exceptional job of explaining what lice looks like, the treatment, and myths. If a student becomes ill during the school day, a parent will be contacted to determine if the student should go home using the guidelines above. Any minor injuries must be reported to a teacher and they will be treated and returned to class. If medication is required, the medication policy 5330 will be followed.
