Picking Up A Sick Child From School
Sick children need to go home from school as soon as possible, for their comfort and for the health of the well students. Coming to school to pick up a sick child may cause an inconvenience and require a parent to leave work, but we thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Please be sure and provide your current phone number and the available emergency contact information.
In compliance with state law and for your child’s safety a parent is requested to notify the school office within the first hour of school. North Palos School District 117 has a dedicated telephone number to call to report your child absent that number is (708) 598-5743. If your child has had a serious injury, illness, eye infection, skin rash or a hospitalization, your doctor may fax documentation to the school directed providing authorization for their return to school.
Students that have a cast, hard splint, or sutures will not participate in physical education until written clearance is provided by the treating physician.
