Communicable Diseases (Exclusion from School for Health Reasons)
To protect all children from communicable illnesses, students infected with certain diseases are NOT allowed to come to school while they are contagious. Students should be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to school. Contact your campus clinic assistant if you are unsure whether or not your child should return to school.
The guidelines below have been developed for the exclusion of students who have communicable or contagious diseases. These regulations are in compliance with the requirements of the local health authority & Bonham ISD Administrative Guidelines.
A student with any of the following symptoms will be excluded from school until such time as the student is free of symptoms, has been satisfactorily treated or submits a signed physician’s statement that he/she is not contagious.
The clinic assistant will notify parents that the student must be excluded for medical reasons. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to transport the student from school to his/her home.
For readmission, some diseases may require a statement from the student’s physician affirming that the student is NOT contagious. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s clinic assistant.
Please remember that these are just guidelines. I would like to stress that this is for the benefit of your child as well as other students in the class.
