Wing Lake Developmental Center Health and Wellness Policy

A few friendly reminders:

Please be sure to follow the district health and wellness policy:

If your child comes to school sick or becomes ill at school, we will call you and ask that you pick up your child immediately. If we cannot reach you, we will call your emergency contact person to pick up your child. If there is an extreme emergency regarding your child, 911 will be called. 

To help reduce the spread of illness to students and staff, please keep your child home for the reasons below.  Parents are strongly encouraged to have their children seen by their medical provider.  All students are excluded from school until fully recovered and are at least 24 hours free from fever (without any fever-reducing medication) before returning to school . Symptoms are unrelated to a preexisting health condition.

  • Severely ill: A child is lethargic or less responsive, has difficulty breathing or has a rapidly spreading rash.

  • Fever: A child with a temperature over 100.4°F with or without respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, sore throat). The child should not return until 24 hours of no fever, without the use of fever-rOPl

  • Persistent sneezing, or thick discharge from the nose.

  • Rash: Check with health care provider before bringing a child to school with a rash. Undiagnosed rashes pose a health threat to other students and adults

  • Sores and crusts on the scalp face or body particularly if red and swollen or draining.  

  • Any skin eruptions or rash (children with rashes must be kept home until a diagnosis by a health care provider is made.) 

  • Cough, particularly if productive or persistent

  • Sore throat

  • Pain and stiffness of neck and headache

  • Swollen and sore glands about the face and neck

  • Nausea and Vomiting: A child who has vomited 2 or more times in 24 hours should stay home.  S/he may return to school after 24 hours without vomiting and is back on a regular diet.
