St. Paul Education asks parents to keep kids home if sick

With the flu going around the Lakeland St. Paul Education wants to remind students and parents there are times were students should stay home.

While the division says attendance is important, they advise students to stay home if they feel sick because many respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses are easily transmitted in the school environment

Staying home when sick can significantly reduce outbreaks and decrease disruptions to learning that occur when large numbers of students and staff at a school become ill.

St. Paul Education has made the infographic below to help parents and guardians decide whether to send their children to school.

If a child becomes sick at school a parent or guardian will be called to pick up the child so that they may rest comfortably at home and reduce the risk of infecting others.

St. Paul Education is also encouraging parents to reach out to 811 Health Link or visit the Alberta Health Services HEAL website for additional support as needed.
