Illness And Isolation

It is a matter of deep concern that parents allow children suffering from infectious ailments to attend classes or examinations. Such conduct can result in an epidemic outbreak in the school.

A child should be medically examined at the first sign of any rash/ fever and should be sent to school only on the advice of a doctor. After recovery from an infectious ailment, a child should remain at home for the period of quarantine as advised by a doctor. On return to school, a medical fitness certificate, duly signed by a doctor, should be submitted to the office.

Quarantine period recommended for-

  • Chicken pox - 3 weeks (till the complete falling of scabs)
  • Measles - 2 weeks
  • Mumps - 2 weeks
  • Conjunctivitis - 1 week
  • Jaundice - 4 weeks

If children come to school with infectious diseases, they will be sent back home.

A student must be medically fit to attend school for the whole day. In case a child is ill, a medical certificate must be provided.
