The health policies listed below are recommended by the DuPage County Health Department and are followed at our school to maintain a safe and healthy school environment:
- If your child is running a fever, the health department recommends the child’s temperature be normal (98.6 F) for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Do not send your child to school with a consistent cough or runny nose, as this infects other children.
- Keep children home for 24 hours after vomiting and flu symptoms subside. This helps to ensure a healthy reentry into the classroom.
- Please report all cases of strep throat and strep-related infections to the school nurse or health aide.
