General Health Information

If your child has special health care needs, requires medication and/or treatments during the school day, or has a chronic health care condition (such as anaphylactic allergy, asthma, diabetes, seizure, etc.) please contact the school nurse who will give you the necessary forms to be completed by you and your primary care physician. This will allow us to provide a safe and stable environment for your child while at school.


Illness

Student attendance is important. We want students in school as much as possible. However, if your child is ill, please keep him/her home so other students and staff are not exposed. When a child becomes ill while at school, a determination will be made whether the child ​needs to be sent home or if he/she may stay at school. All communicable diseases (i.e. chicken pox, strep throat, head lice, Fifth’s disease) must be reported to the school.  A notice of symptoms and recommendations will be sent to all students in the elementary school. Sioux Falls Christian follows recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the South Dakota Department of Health. As with all guidelines, the school nurse and administration will use their best discretion to determine what is safe for our students.
Please consult the linked documentation below for a list of illnesses
and medical situations that will require your child(ren) to be kept out of school.
