Illness and Injury:
When does my child need to stay home from school due to illness?
When your child is ill, it is important that they have time to rest and recover before returning to school. See the Note From the Nurse for a list of reasons why your child will need to be kept home from school. If you have additional questions, please contact the Health Aide at your child’s school.
What documentation does the school need if my child has temporary restrictions due to injury (ie a concussion, broken bone, etc)?
If your student has temporary restrictions or needs accommodations at school due to injury, please have their primary care provider fax a statement to the school. The statement should include the needed restrictions and the length of time that the restrictions will need to be in place.
