No child should be sent to school if he/she has a severe cold, fever, sore throat, vomiting, rash, or any other symptom of a contagious disease (ex. conjunctivitis). Please notify the school nurse when you child develops a communicable disease (ex. chickenpox).

If your child requires an excuse from gym (especially in cases of fracture arm, leg, severe asthma, etc,) the physician can fax the medical note c/o school nurse.
