Student Illness Policy

Updated 9/21/2020

In order to keep all students and adults at Resurrection safe this year, we must follow this protocol. This protocol is in compliance with local agencies, including the Wyandotte County Health Department. 

If a child does not come to school or is sent home from school with one or more of the following symptoms,

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

then a note from the doctor is required before the student is allowed to return.  

  • If the doctor feels a COVID test is needed and the student tests positive, they are allowed to return to school after 10 days and  when they are symptom free without the use of fever reducing medicine for 72 hours. 

  • If the COVID test is negative the doctor may choose to not release or allow the student to return to school for 10 days.

  • If the doctor states that the symptoms are NOT related to COVID (allergies, strep throat, etc.) the student may return with a note from the doctor.

  • If your child has any of the above mentioned symptoms and stays home from school, they will not be allowed to return to school for 10 days without a note from a doctor.

Parents, PLEASE call when your child will not be in school.  We MUST keep track of all student illnesses this year so that everyone stays safe. 

Thank you for your help keeping us all well!
