What Should I Do If My Child Has to Miss Several Days of School?

The most important thing is that your child gets well and doesn't return to school until you get approval from your doctor. To prevent the spread of illnesses and diseases, it's vital you follow the doctor's orders and stay home until you're well enough to return to school.

Practical Steps:

  • Let the school know if your child will miss several days of school due to an illness.
  • Ask your teacher(s) if there is homework or other tasks your child can work on while at home.
  • Ensure your child is well before sending him or her to school.
  • Don't forget the doctor's note, if your child visited a medical provider.
  • If your child has been diagnosed with COVID-19, please contact your school's principal directly. All information will remain confidential and will only be used for internal purposes.
