UPDATED AS OF JANUARY 3, 2022

The health and well-being of our community is of paramount importance to the League School of Greater Boston.
The program works hard to avoid the spread of illness at school and will attempt to minimize the spread of illness
by encouraging frequent hand washing and sanitizing as well as by sending students and staff home when they are
ill. Following the policies and protocols listed below will aid in minimizing spread of illness and allow students
and staff to engage fully in daily programming. Our goal is to ensure that sick individuals are identified and cared
for appropriately and that everyone is protected from preventable infection. The following policies and protocols
will enable staff and parents/guardians to be clear about requirements and procedures when someone is unwell.


Keeping your Child Home from School

Under no circumstances may a parent send a sick child to school, if the child shows any signs of illness (see
below) or is unable to participate in the normal routine and regular school day. Sick individuals will expose other
students and staff members who they come in contact with. These people can in turn expose other students.
Because this is disruptive to other students and their families, your cooperation on this issue is extremely
important.

Parents should observe for symptoms of illness each morning before school. For the safety of all students, please
follow our program policy on when to keep your child home.

Please keep your child home from school if any of the following are observed:
● Fever: fever is defined as having a temperature of 100℉ or higher taken under the arm or
101℉ taken orally
● Sore throat and/or swollen glands
● Earache and/or discharge from the ear canal
● Itchy red eyes, with or without drainage
● Frequent or uncontrolled cough and/or runny nose
● Severe headache
● Unidentified rash
● Vomiting: 2 or more times in a 24 hour period
● Diarrhea: runny, watery, bloody stools, OR 2 or more loose stools within the last 4 hours
● Seizure
