In an effort to keep the Christian Life family as healthy as possible, we ask that you use the following guidelines to determine if you child is ill. These guidelines will determine whether a child may attend school or if he/she needs to be kept home or picked up from school.
 
If your child has any of the following symptoms the night before or before leaving for school in the morning, we ask that you seriously consider keeping your child home. Also know that if you child is sent to school or comes down with any of the following symptoms, you will be called and asked to come and pick up your child form school. 
 
  • Fever of 100o F or higher
  • Diarrhea once in a day with a fever
  • Diarrhea 2 times in a day, without a fever
  • Vomiting
  • Runny red eyes with discharge (pink eye)
  • Excessive coughing, difficulty breathing
  • Excessive runny nose with unclear or colored mucus

Before any child may return to school, the child must remain symptom-free for 24 hours.
