ST. MARK PARISH SCHOOL STUDENT HANDBOOK
ILLNESS

A student who becomes ill at school will be cared for temporarily at the office until parents or emergency contacts pick up the student. It is important for each family to have an emergency card on file with current phone numbers for contact persons.
 
Children should not return to school after an illness unless they are well enough to follow the normal routine, including going outdoors at recess time. They must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. The school does not have adequate personnel to supervise children staying indoors at recess times. On rare occasions, an exception to this policy may be granted.
