Your child will be seen in the health office if he or she becomes ill or injured at school. The health aide, or office staff, will determine if your child needs to go home for illness or injury. If your child needs to go home, you will be contacted as soon as possible. The school does not have a way to keep ill children for long periods of time. Therefore, it is important that parents keep the school informed of any changes in telephone numbers, especially cell phone and work numbers.
