Not Feeling 100%
Things to consider if your child feels unwell:
The wellbeing of your child
Without proper rest, a child may have a hard time fighting an illness or be at risk for other illnesses.
The ability of your child to actively take part and learn at school.
The school staff cannot care for a sick child and give them the support that they may need.
The protection of other children.
Please keep your child home if they:
Have a fever
Are too sick to take part in all normal school activities.
Have a suspected or known communicable disease (i.e. strep throat, chicken pox, measles).
Is vomiting or has diarrhea.
It is recommended that students be symptom free at least 24 hours before returning to school. Keep your child home until they are able to participate fully in normal school activities or as told by a health care provider. Please let the school know your child’s symptoms, as per the school’s call back procedures.
Whether it be through providing licensed childcare services and childcare resources to childcare providers, offering physiotherapy and occupational therapy for young children, or by delivering opportunities for families to connect through Aboriginal family programs or parent education programs, Kootenay Kids Society remains true to its roots, and we continue to support and strengthen families.
