ILLNESS WHEN SCHOOL IS NOT IN SESSIONIf your child is ill or the HMS health screening tool indicates that the child should not come on campus, these are the following steps that you can anticipate occurring…
ILLNESS DURING THE SCHOOL DAYYour child will be assessed by Health Office staff privately and away from the classroom. If a determination is made that the student cannot remain on campus, Health Office staff will contact the parent / responsible adult, who will be provided an update along with a request to have the student picked up from school. The student will remain at the designated isolation area, supervised by school staff until picked up by the responsible adult.
