We are on high alert for signs of illness in public settings. We very much appreciate
when parents do anything and everything to keep from sending sick kids to school.
We understand how challenging juggling parenting and work can be, but the serious strains
of illness going around are highly concerning. Sending an already unhealthy child to
school doesn't just put others at risk, it is dangerous for your own child to be here with
an already compromised immune system.
If students have a chronic cough, or are just
more lethargic than usual, they aren't going to be successful anyway in an 8 hour school
day. Additionally, they can be distracting to others around them. Most importantly, allow
students to fully recover, so they don't return with a compromised immune system, only
to be exposed to undetected influenza and RSV.
