Regulations for the Control of Communicable Diseases

The Kewanee Community Unit Schools, in conjunction with the City Board of Health, have set up the following regulations to aid in the prevention of contagion in the schools. Communicable disease may be controlled only if there is cooperation between the home and the school.

  1. Whenever a child has been absent from school, even for a half day, he/she must bring a note from home Giving the Cause of Absence.
  2. Whenever a child has been absent from school on account of illness for 5 consecutive days, he/she must bring in addition to the note from home, a permit from the family physician or school nurse, stating that he/she may be readmitted.
  3. A physician’s permit must be obtained in case of any contagious disease, pneumonia, or following surgery or serious injury.
