Illness Guidelines

When a student is absent from school, a parent must call the office by 8:00 a.m. each day of the absence. If the office does not receive a call, a parent will be contacted. Homework will be available online and on the teacher website. Homework is posted each day after 3:00 p.m.


Students must be fever free for 24 hours and symptom free before returning to school. If the child is experiencing common symptoms, i.e. allergies or asthma, the office should be notified. If the child has been diagnosed with a contagious disease, i.e. streptococcus, kindly notify the school office so that precautions can be taken. (PLEASE SEE SPECIFIC INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 ON THE ST. JULIANA SCHOOL WEBSITE.)


A written statement giving reasons for the absence must be brought to the student’s teacher upon the student’s return. The teacher will retain these notes/letters for one year. In the case of absence for any reason other than illness, parents must consult with the school office and present a written reason for the absence.
