Illness and Injury
Contagious Illness Policy
It is our goal in Health Services to help keep students healthy, in class, and learning. However, there are times when a student is sick or potentially contagious to other students and staff. When these times are observed, parents/guardians will be contatcted to pick up their child.
Parents/Guardian will be notified with the following conditions:
Temperature of 100.4 or higher
Diarrhea (if it interferes with classes)
Infections of the eyes
Any open draining wound that has not been medically treated
Any student running a temperature of 100.4 or greater will be sent home. Tylenol will be given with prior written permission by parents (Student Health Info Sheet in the Student Handbook). Students should stay home until they are fever free for 24 hours without taking medication to reduce their temperature.
Students with minor injuries occurring at school will be treated and returned to class. First Aid treatments and preparations used are in accordance with American Red Cross First Aid as recommended by the Arkansas State Board of Education, School Health Services Program.
