It is very important for unwell students to stay at home until they are better. If your child has any symptoms of a cold or flu then they should stay home until the symptoms have ceased. A general rule of thumb about whether you should send your child to school is as follows:
- If you have to give your child Panadol or Nurofen for a fever today, they should STAY AT HOME
- If your child has a hard cough, constant runny nose, sore throat or swollen glands THEY SHOULD NOT BE AT SCHOOL
- If you have given them Panadol or Nurofen in the morning to get them “through the day” THEN THEY SHOULD NOT COME TO SCHOOL
- If your child has vomiting and/or diarrhoea today, they should not come to school for 48 hours AFTER SYMPTOMS HAVE RESOLVED
Please do not send your child to school if they are still unwell or recovering from an illness.
Students who are unwell will be sent to the Sick Bay & if necessary parents will be called to collect them. If your child or a member of your household has been tested for COVID 19 please keep them at home until the test has been returned negative.
NSW Health has information available on its website.
If your child needs to take medication during school hours eg. antibiotics or antihistamines, a Medical Permission Form is required to be completed and handed into the front office along with the medication. Please see Mrs Pittman in the Office.
