HANDLING COMMON HEALTH CONCERNS

 

It is sometimes difficult to judge whether a child is well enough to attend school.  We hope that the following guidelines developed by the school nurse will help you to make that important decision wisely.

Prevention is the best medicine for colds and infections.  Assist children with frequent hand-washing and personal hygiene to help prevent the spread of germs.  Please consult your family doctor with any concerns or questions.

If you make the decision to keep your child home from school, Please call the office to report your absence at 860-572-5825, and follow up with a note, or a doctor's note when your child returns to school.  Thank you.
