Greetings from International Academic School, Dubai.
It is the time of year, when unfortunately in schools, we see a lot of sickness amongst the children. If children are unwell, they must be kept at home to prevent the spread of illness in the school community and to allow them the opportunity to rest and recover. With this in mind, please be aware that children should not be sent to school with any of the following conditions:
- Fever greater than 37.5 C / Rash (with or without fever)
- Diarrhoea / Vomiting
- Breathing difficulties or persistent cough / Conjunctivitis or eye infection
Any child suffering from a contagious condition that warrants the prescription of antibiotics should be kept at home during the first 48 hours after starting the course of antibiotics and will not be admitted to the classes during this period.
