Please remember to send Doctor Excuse slips within 48 hours of absence, they can also be faxed at 812-847-6032 Making Arrangements with your student: The Middle School Office would greatly appreciate your efforts in making school arrangements before your student arrives at school. Please tell your student in the mornings how they will be going home after school or other information that they need to know. The hectic nature of the office at the end of the day makes it difficult to deliver messages to students in class. Emergency calls are always accepted and delivered when possible. Please help us out and encourage your student to make their plans with you before arriving at school. *Parent/Guardian you need not to contact the school to sign your student(s) out for appointment(s) unless someone other than the Parent/Guardian is signing them out. We need your permission to allow this. Note from the Nurse: LICE To control and eliminate head lice infestation, while ensuring that parents/guardians have an adequate amount of time to clean the childs head and the house without accumulating unexcused absences. Parents are responsible for checking their own childs head for lice periodically. The school nurse or designated staff will check students referred by staff members including siblings and friends, as appropriate. Children identified with head lice will be sent home. Students must be checked by the nurse or designee and found to be free of live lice, before they are permitted to return to school or ride on the school bus. Parents are responsible for transporting their child to school to have their head checked. Students are not permitted to ride the bus until they have been checked and approved to return. Immediately upon discovery of head lice, the parent/guardian will be contacted to take the child home to begin the process of cleaning the childs head and the house. It is the parents responsibility to transport the child home promptly when notified. The day the child is sent home due to head lice will be excused #1. 1. The student will need to return to school, the next scheduled school day, prior to the tardy bell, to be checked by the nurse or designee. If the parent/guardian calls the student in absent for this, it will be counted as an excused absence up to two (2) days only. If the child is found to be clear of all head lice, the child will then return to class. If the child remains infested with head lice, the parent/guardian will take the child back home to continue the process of eliminating head lice. This day will be counted as an excused absence as long as the student returned on the next scheduled school day, prior to the tardy bell-excused #2. 2. The student will need to follow the same process for the next consecutive school day. If the child is found clear of all head lice, the child will then return to class. If the child remains infested with head lice, the parent/guardian will take the child back home to continue the process of eliminating head lice. This day will also be counted as an excused absence, as long as the student returned on the next scheduled school day, prior to the tardy bell-excused #3. 3. The student will then need to return on the third consecutive school day, prior to the tardy bell, to be checked by the nurse or designee. If the child is found clear of all head lice, the child will then return to class. If the child remains infested with head lice, the parent/guardian will take the child back home to continue the process of eliminating head lice. This day and all days to follow will be unexcused absences. Please note that this process may be used no more than once per semester. All other occurrences per semester will be unexcused days. * Written notes will be required from parents/guardians for absences beyond the excused days, but will be counted as unexcused. Students who have a temperature 100.0 or above will be sent home from school. Students should be kept at home until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication.
