sick child policy

It is the policy of Temple Emanu-El ECEC that children who have a temperature of 100.0 or higher be sent home and cannot return the next day. A student must be 24 hours fever free (without fever reducing medication) before returning to school. In addition, if your child continues to have symptoms (severe coughing, sore throat, infectious runny nose, body aches, chills and or fatigue) after the 24 hour fever free waiting period, they must remain home until all symptoms are gone. During flu season many students testing positive for Type A flu are being advised to stay home for 7 days. It is extremely important that you follow your health care provider's instructions regarding returning to school, even if you child is feeling 100% well. Please do not send your sick child to school. The children's health is of the utmost importance to us.

Children may also be sent home if they have episodes of vomiting or diarrhea and they may not return the next day to school. A student must be 24 hours vomiting and/or diarrhea free (without symptom reducing medication) before returning to school. Children who have had more than one on these episodes within a twenty four hour period should not be admitted to school.
