• School Absence/Emergency Contacts

     

    In the event your child is absent from school, you must notify the House Office secretary. Absence calls should be made prior to 8:30 AM. There are answering machines in all the offices, enabling you to call at any time. If your child has a contagious condition, it is appropriate to also notify the health office.

     

    Your child is too sick for school if he or she:
     
    * has a temperature of 100 F or above any time in the previous 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Motrin
    * has vomited or had diarrhea in the past 24 hours
    * complains of a stomachache or fatigue with other symptoms(headache, fever, etc)
    has a headache that persists for a day or recurs
    * breaks out in rash of unknown etiology
    * has a purulent discharge form either or both eyes (contact your child's physician)
    * has a persistent cough 
     



    It is critical that both the house and health offices maintain accurate emergency contact information. Please be sure to complete and return the contact information sheet sent out by the district. It is imperative that you update this information. If you move, change jobs, change phone numbers, change caretakers etc.), you MUST notify your house office secretary with the new information.
