Restrictions related to Physical Education:
If your child cannot participate in more than three consecutive physical education classes, a letter must be completed by the child’s doctor and brought to school. If the letter does not include a return to full activity date, then the child will need a release note from the doctor in order for him/her to return to physical education classes.
Please keep your child home if he/she:
has had a fever of 100.4 or higher for the past 24 hours.
For example, if your son or daughter has a temperature of 99 because you have given Tylenol to bring the temperature down, you must start counting the 24 hours after the Tylenol has worn off, 4-6 hours later. We believe this will help to prevent the spread of illness. Be aware that if your child returns to school the next day after being sent home the day before with a fever, we will notify you to pick up your child immediately.
