Covid19 exclusions –

SJB is using the Minnesota Department of Health – Decision Tree  when handling Covid19 related exclusions.  If your student has one common symptom, two less common symptoms, has tested positive, or been in close contact with someone who has tested positive – they will need to be excluded.  Following this precaution will help protect our entire community and allow us to continue to have classes in person.  Please contact Paul Dieltz if you have any questions about this process or believe you fall into the exclusion category.

Should I send my child to school?

A student must meet the following conditions to attend school:

  • Fever-free without fever-relieving medication for 24 hours.Must have no episodes of vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours.
  • Must have no episodes of vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours.
  • If placed on antibiotics/antiviral for infection, they must be on them for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
  • If your child has a rash of unknown origin, a note from health care provider must be provided prior to returning to school

Please contact the school office (office@sjb-school.org, 651-437-2644) to report your student’s absence each day your student is ill. Report the symptoms and any communicable condition, such as chicken pox, strep throat, cough/fever, or pink eye.

Medications

It is our general policy that mediation should be administered by the parents/guardian at home. However, there are times when medication needs to be administered at school.

Prescription medications require an order from a health care provider with the name of the medication, dose, route, time to be given, how often, and the name of the student. The order must be signed by the health care provider and parent. The medication must have a prescription label that matched the order exactly.

Non-prescription medication (over-the-counter medication) must be presented in the original container and with a form filled completed and signed the parent//guardian. All medication will be kept in locked drawer in the school office, not with the student. The school will not supply any medication for the student.
