It is a matter of deep concern that parents allow children suffering from infectious ailments to attend classes or examinations. Such conduct can result in an epidemic outbreak in the school.
A child should be medically examined at the first sign of any rash/fever and should be sent to school only on the advice of a doctor. After recovery from an infectious ailment, a child should remain at home for the period of quarantine as advised by a doctor. On return to school, a medical fitness certificate, duly signed by a doctor, should be submitted to the office.
Quarantine period recommended for-
Chicken Pox – 3 weeks (till the complete failing of scabs)
Measles – 2 weeks
Mumps – 2 weeks
Conjunctivitis – 1 week
Jaundice – 4 weeks
If children come to school with infectious, they will be sent back home.
A student must be medically fit to attend for the whole day. In case a child is ill, a medical certificate must be provided.
