Student Illness Policy
Children who are not feeling well in the morning, or who have a rash, eye infection, or anything that might be contagious should not be sent to school. Children should not return to school after an illness until they are symptom free for 24 hours without medication (except for antibiotics). All communicable diseases, including head lice, should be reported to the Nurse immediately.
Students who become ill or injured at school are responsible for informing their teachers. The School will then notify their parents. The School Nurse’s Office is available for students who are sick or injured.
Meet the Nurse
My name is Shelley Youngblood, and I am the School Nurse this year. I grew up in New York City, but my parents are from Charleston, SC. I have a little dog named Chase Oliver. He’s a rat terrier, just like Wishbone. I don’t have any children of my own, but I have 5 nieces and 3 nephews whom I enjoy spending time with.
