Sick and Inclement Weather Policy

SICK POLICY

 

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO FAITH FORMATION IF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING APPLY:

 

These symptoms in students suggest a communicable illness, or one that a child easily passes to another child. To keep the faith formation environment as healthy as possible for all, please keep students home with the following symptoms. If these symptoms are seen, you will be called to pick up your child.  

 

Fever – A fever is defined as a reading over 100 degrees F – oral or axillary (underarm). Students must be fever free, without medication, for 24 hours before returning to school.  

Diarrhea – Until diarrhea stops or a health provider exam indicates that it is not due to a communicable disease. Diarrhea is defined as an increased number of stools compared with a person’s normal pattern, along with decreased stool form.  

Vomiting – Keep home for 24 hours from time of last episode.  

Lice - Some symptoms of head lice are: low-grade fever, bags under the eyes, swollen glands, rash at the nape of the neck, falling asleep after a good night's sleep

Rash that is spreading – (especially with fever of behavior change) – Health provider exam is necessary to determine that the rash is not communicable to other.  

Eye drainage/ Pink Eye – If thick mucus or pus is present or redness to the eye, health care treatment may be necessary.  

Other signs to consider in your child – Unusually tired, uncontrolled coughing, irritability, difficulty breathing, wheezing, change in skin color, persistent crying, emotionally distraught, unrelieved headache.
