• Free of Symptoms (Clinic Policy)
    It is the goal of Community ISD to provide an environment that is conducive to learning for all students and staff. Some communicable diseases or conditions may warrant exclusion from school to avoid exposing other students. If your student exhibits any of the following symptoms, please keep your student home until the child is free of the symptoms and has been satisfactorily treated.

    -A temperature of 100 degrees or above

    -Vomiting and/or diarrhea

    -Persistent cough


    -Open, itchy or draining lesions

    -Red, itchy, draining eyes

    -Presence of live lice or nits in the hair (see below Head Lice/Pediculosis)

    -Suffering from a reportable disease, as defined by the Texas Department of State Health Services 

    -Undiagnosed scaly patches on the body or scalp

    ***Your child must be 24 hours free of fever without any fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol/Acetominophen or Advil/Ibuprofen and NOT throwing-up or having diarrhea for 24 hours before they return to school. Antibiotics (if prescribed) must be taken for 24 hours before returning to school.
