This allows for the possibility of return of the fever, and gives the body time to rest and repair before returning to school, and possible exposure to other illnesses in a weakened state.

Vomiting/diarrhea- any child that has either of these in the evening or early morning, should not come to school that morning. If there is an underlying medical condition that is the cause of either of these problems, please contact your school’s health office.

DIET RESTRICTIONS
