27 Feb Student Health Update
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently issued a statement regarding the coronavirus. We are working with other schools within CESA to determine best practices. In the meantime, please be reminded of the following guidelines when your child has symptoms of illness:
- Fever of 100° or above—child must not return to school until the temperature is normal for 24 hours unmedicated. If your child persists with fever (exceptionally high fevers >102) for more than 48 hours, please follow up with a doctor. Please do not medicate your child and send them to school for the sake of your child and others around them.
- Vomiting or diarrhea—child must not return to school until symptom-free for 24 hours
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)—if a child has redness of eye, drainage, itching or burning; they will not be permitted to return to school without a doctor’s note
- Strep throat—your child must be on an antibiotic for 24 hours before returning to school and must present a doctor’s note upon return.
We will adhere to these guidelines for the protection of everyone at our school. Please also review the general flu guide for parents. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school nurse, Sheila Pierce, at 954.771.4600, ext. 2524 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
