Now is the period before indoor heating starts, and it is the most susceptible time to catch a cold. At this time, we need to pay attention to personal hygiene and keep warm to prevent infectious diseases.

Please help us to maintain a safe and healthy environment at school by not sending your child to school if they are:

  • ill
  • have a cough or runny nose that cannot be independently controlled inside a classroom
  • have a fever at or above 37.3˚C (99.1˚F)
  • have a rash related to illness (chickenpox, measles, roseola, etc.)
  • have vomited or had diarrhea (3 or more watery stools in a day) from sickness in the past 24 hours.

    Your child must be fever-free for 24 hours without any fever-reducing medication to return to school.

All staff and students who report a 37.3 or above fever will go to the fever clinic to complete a COVID-19 test. They will not be permitted on the school campus until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours and have a negative COVID-19 test.
