Dear Stratton Community,
What a great start to the school year! Thank you to everyone for continuing to support the health and wellness of the Stratton community. This Fall, we were able to host a Flu clinic as well as a Dental Clinic for those who signed up. We have almost finished all of the vision and hearing screenings for our students. We are planning to host another Dental Clinic in the Spring for those interested, and we are always looking for more ways to promote health and wellness at Stratton - so if you have ideas, let me know!
I just wanted to take this opportunity as we are now fully into cold and flu season, please review the district's guidelines regarding attendance for illness. If your child exhibits any of the following, please keep your child home and seek advice from your healthcare provider. Please notify me if your child is diagnosed with certain communicable illnesses, such as COVID, flu, strep, etc, so that I can keep track in the classrooms in case we see spread that warrants a letter home to all caregivers.
Student Attendance During Illness
There are times when a student should remain at home for their own welfare and the
protection of other students. Your student should remain at home if they have:
- Uncontrollable and/or productive cough
- Fever over 100.0 degrees fahrenheit within past 24 hours
- Vomiting or diarrhea within past 24 hours
- Sore throat and swollen glands
- Undiagnosed rash or skin eruptions
- Earache, severe headache or drainage from eyes
Students should remain home for 24 hours after an acute illness or after starting
antibiotics for a diagnosed infection. They should also be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc). These absences will be excused with appropriate documentation.
