When Should My Child Stay Home?
Please do not send your child to school if he/she is ill
If your child is sick - even with mild symptoms - please keep your child home from school and notify your child’s school that your student is ill.
The Washington State Department of Health has created a flowchart to guide families with symptom evaluation and management. You can find the document provided by WA DOH here. Call your child's school nurse if you have any questions or call Health Services at (360)473-1073.
Chronic Health Condition
If your child's symptoms are related to a chronic condition, please contact your child's school nurse and follow school policies for chronic condition management. Your child may need to have an Individualized Healthcare Plan (IHP) developed. An IHP is created by the school nurse for students who require health services or have an illness that may result in a health crisis. An IHP is a vital component to manage or alleviate a student's healthcare needs. Examples of health conditions includes diabetes, asthma, cerepral palsy, life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), and seizures.
