Granby School Nurses are available during school hours. Nursing staff is not available during before and after school hours. Families are responsible for their child's health care needs during this time.
To ensure the best possible care, it is essential that families maintain open communication with nursing and school staff, especially if their child's health condition has changed. It is also extremely important that families provide their school with their child's latest physical exam and immunizations. Families should also regularly update their contact and emergency numbers in the event of illness, injury, or emergency.
If your child has had a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting, they must stay home for at least 24 hours. Students may return to school after 24 hours if they have not had any diarrhea, vomiting, and/or fever within this time period. They have to be fever-free without the use of medicine (such as Motrin or Tylenol) for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has a communicable disease such as strep throat or pink eye, student must be on antibiotics for 24 hours before they can return to school. This is to help reduce the spread of these conditions to students, school staff, and families. If you are unsure of the exclusion period for a particular communicable condition, please contact your School Nurse.
Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding!
