VMS Illness Policy

We have received many questions recently around what our policy is for students that are ill. It is our expectation that students showing signs of illness: cough, runny nose, sneezing, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. will be kept home with parents/guardians until they have been symptom free for 24 hours.

We do recognize that allergies may be a consideration for many students and will take that into account when determining if a student should be sent home due to illness.

Students that are sent home from school due to illness will have their absence cleared for that day and the day following. We thank everyone in advance for their anticipated cooperation in ensuring the health and wellness of all our students and staff.
