    will be excluded from school until adequately treated. Students found to be infested with

    head lice will be sent home and may not return to class until adequately treated and rechecked by the

    Please keep your child home if he/she has a fever greater than 100, vomiting, or has diarrhea.  BISD's policy states children may return to school when they have been free from fever (without the use of Motrin or Tylenol), vomiting, and/or diarrhea for 24 hours.  Please call me when your child has a diagnosis from a physician of something infectious such as flu, strep throat, chicken pox, or staph infection.
