Tdap Vaccinations

Be ready for next year. Students who are in the 5th grade and turn 11 years old can go ahead and receive a Tdap vaccination. Call Teresa Duprel, RN at 361-3880 if you would like a copy of your child's shot record to take to the doctor.

(The Tdap vaccine is only given to children AFTER their 11th birthday.)


When to keep your child home

Regular attendance is encouraged and is necessary for a child’s progress. However, in order to prevent the spread of communicable diseases to others, the child should stay at home if he/she has any of the following conditions:

  • Fever
    A temperature of 100 degrees or above. The child should remain home until fever-free for 24 hours or on antibiotics for 24 hours.

  • Vomiting
    Your child should not attend school if he/she has vomited within the last 24 hours

  • Diarrhea
    Your child should remain home if he/she has had diarrhea within the last 24 hours.

  • Undiagnosed Rash
    Your child should not attend school until the rash has been diagnosed and treated. It could be measles, chickenpox or another contagious disease.

  • Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)
    Pink eye is contagious. Your child should be seen by your doctor and treated before returning to school.

    Lice or Nits (Eggs)
    Your child should not return to school until he/she has been treated with a lice shampoo and as many  nits as possible have been removed. You must accompany your child upon his/her return to school and provide proof of treatment in receipt form with date of purchase. Take your child to the office to be checked.

There are times when your child looks and feels like he/she is too ill to study or learn in school. If so, there is no point in being at school because he/she will not be able to learn.
