The health and safety of our students is of great importance to us. To allow for each student's optimum personal growth, we must provide a healthy school environment. To achieve this we ask for everyone's cooperation in the following guidelines we have set forth. Please follow our recommendations as to when to keep your child home, knowing that it is in the best interest of your child and the school as a whole.
Based upon our Standing Doctor's Orders, your child should stay home if he/she has:
· an elevation in temperature (100 degrees or more). *Your child should remain home until fever-free for 24 hours without acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
· any vomiting or diarrhea. *Your child should remain home until vomiting and/or diarrhea has stopped for 24 hours and food is tolerated.· any contagious illness (strep throat, persistent cough, unidentified rash, etc) that could infect others, distract your child or disrupt the class. *Physician's note will be needed to return.Also, here is a link with guidance from NJDOH - click here
