    If your child has had a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, he/she should not attend school. Health care professionals recommend that your child be fever-free for at least 24-hours (without the use of medications like Tylenol or Advil) before returning to school.   If your child has had antibiotics administered, the student must have received a minimum of 12 hours worth of antibiotics and be fever-free before returning to school.

    Please notify the school when your child is ill at home. Absences should be reported to the Absentee Verification Program by calling 432-8691 and accessing your child’s school extension as follows:
