REMINDER FROM THE NURSE
In cooperation with the Morristown Board of Health and the American Pediatric Association we are reminding all parents that their children must be fever free for an entire 24 hours before returning to school from an illness. The 24 hours does not include any time where medication was used to lower your child’s temperature.
Please do not tell your child to try to make it through the day and go to the nurse if necessary. She is presently overwhelmed with students who have come to school not feeling well but are attempting to power through the day in an attempt to be in school for a test or assignment.
