It is our job to think of the whole class and the potential of the illness passing through the whole room. We ask that you also use your professional judgement as parents. Ask yourselves this question: "Would I want my child in a room with a child this sick?"
The policy of our school and camp is that children with an obvious acute illness or contagion will not be allowed to stay. Contagion includes bad colds and the flu.
Please review the "Keep Me Home If…" information guide and the contagion list below describing how long after the onset of the illness before your child may return to school or camp:
Child Contagion Guide
