Attendance and what to do if your student is ill/injured

Every day, the Parent/Guardian must report the student’s absence/tardy, regardless of the reason, so proper attendance can be recorded. If your student is ill, and/or showing any symptoms of COVID 19 illness, notify the school nurse and keep your student at home.  Do not send them into school. 

Please discourage your student from contacting you directly
if they become ill or injured while at school and want to go home WITHOUT notifying the school nurse first.  It is important to keep the school nurse informed of all medical issues so that the community as a whole can remain safe and healthy.
