If a student has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, or is determined to be too ill to be in school for the day (diarrhea, vomiting, suspicious rash, chronic coughing, etc.), the parent/guardian will be called to pick up their child.
Wadena-Deer Creek School health office policies are guided by evidence-based practices. The guiding resource used is the Infectious Diseases in Childcare Settings and Schools Manual written and regularly updated by the Hennepin County Human Services and Public Health Department Epidemiology Unit. The manual informs administrators, childcare providers, caregivers, parents and guardians, and school health staff about specific infectious disease problems they may encounter in the childcare setting or in schools. This manual is designed to provide specific disease prevention and control guidelines which are consistent with the national standards put forth by the American Public Health Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Access to this guide is available below.
