ILLNESS SYMPTOMS For the protection of all students, your child should be kept at home if he/she exhibits any of the following symptoms:
Diarrhea or vomiting
Any contagious disease
Itchy, discharging eyes, itchy ears, or unusual nasal discharge
Children must be fever-free with a normal temperature of 98.6 degrees for 24 hours before returning to school
Parents should exercise every caution and keep their child at home when other unusual symptoms occur
If the child has been exposed to a contagious disease, he/she should be kept at home and the state of his/her condition should be reported to the school. The following is a list of conditions categorized as “highly contagious:”
pin worms *viral infections *measles
chicken pox *mumps *scarlet fever
pink eye *head lice *strep throat
flu *Covid-19 or variant
infected ears and/or glands
A note from the doctor stating the student is no longer contagious is required before the student is allowed to return to school after a contagious disease.
If a student becomes ill during the day, a Grace Lutheran School member will contact the parent(s) to request that the parent will immediately make arrangements to take the child home.
Any child too sick to participate in school is too sick to be in school.
