Sick at School
If my child gets sick in school:
If the principal feels that the child is sick enough to go home, she, or the secretary will phone a parent (usually the mother) and request that the child be collected.
While waiting for collection the child will return to her classroom.
If it is not possible to contact either parent the person listed on the emergency form will be contacted.
- If your child has a toileting accident in school she will be given a change of clothes. Please wash them and return them to the school as soon as possible.
If my child is sick and cannot attend school:
Please phone the office and advise the secretary that she is sick and will not be in school.
Do not send your child back to school if she is still ill and/or is still infectious.
- When she is well enough to return to school please write a note in her journal (1st – 6th class) advising the teacher as to why she has been absent. Parents of infants should write a note for the teacher.
