Clarification of Illness Policy

There seems to be a misunderstanding and some confusion with the health policy implemented at Wilber Clatonia Public Schools. If your child is sent home from school, or is ill with flu like symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, or has a temperature of 100 degrees or above, your child needs to remain home for at least a minimum of 24 hours from when symptoms cease. Students with temperatures that require the use of fever reducing medications may return after 24 hours has past after the last dose of medicine and no further symptoms are noted. Please understand that if your child is sent home from school for flu like illness, they may not return until 24 hours has past from the time they left, in the attempt to be proactive against spreading illness to our student body. We hope to have your consideration and understanding.
