Health Standards

Your child’s health is a concern for Ascension Day School.  All children attending our school should be free of contagious diseases.  Also, your child’s immunizations are to be in good standing, and a blue card will need to be submitted.  The school will remind you when the current card is about to expire.  Children who have a fever, severe cough, green runny nose, or any other indications of infection should not be brought to school.
The staff will take the temperature of any child who seems ill during the day.  If your child is running a low-grade fever, you will be notified.  If your child is running a significant fever, you will be notified and asked to pick up your child.
Please keep your child home if:
· He or she has had a significant fever in the last 24 hours.
· He or she has a constant cough or runny green nose.
· He or she has vomited or has had diarrhea in the last 24 hours.
If your child tests positive for a communicable illness, please let us know so that we can disinfect properly and notify the other parents in your child’s class to be on the look-out for symptoms.
