WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL?

Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning. The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:

REASONS FOR KEEPING YOUR CHILD HOME:

~Illness during the night
~Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
~Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
~Development of a rash on face and/or body
~Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
~Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them

Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

A student’s absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: (858) 673-3967.

Homework can also be requested on this phone message, please indicate when you will be picking it up.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
Calling all scientists! I would like to encourage every student at Turtleback to participate in the science fair. It will not only be a great learning experience but a fun one too! You can work by yourself, with a partner or in a group up to four people. Groups of students don’t have to be in the same grade level, so siblings can enter one group project if they choose to! There are many great online resources for project ideas and I would encourage you to start looking now for a possible project you would like to work on. If you have any other questions, please see me or e-mail me! aauten@powayusd.com
