To protect other students from contagious illnesses, students infected with certain diseases are not allowed to come to school while contagious. If a parent suspects that his or her child has a contagious disease, the parent should contact the school nurse or principal so that other students who might have been exposed to the disease can be alerted. The school nurse or the principal’s office can provide information from the Department of State Health Services regarding these diseases.
    In addition, if your student has had fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea, they must be excluded from school until they are free from these conditions for 24 hours without medications to control them (i.e. fever reducers, antiemetics, antidiarrheal medications).
