NYOS Charter School

Illness and Injuries

A student who is ill should not be sent to school since this may result in his/her health becoming worse and exposing others. When students become ill or injured at school they will receive prompt attention from the staff. If a student is ill or injured beyond first aid or simple comfort measures parents will be contacted. Students who are ill with a temperature of 100 degrees or more must be picked up.  If your student is vomiting or is having diarrhea, parents will be required to pick up students.

A child who is ill should not be sent to school since this may result in his/her health becoming worse and exposing others. Our school requires that students should be kept home if they have experienced abnormal temperature at or above 100 degrees or vomiting and/or diarrhea within the previous 24-hour period.
