Recess and Student Illness

From time to time, teachers receive requests asking that students stay inside during recess because of illness—or because they are recovering from a recent illness. Please know that if children are at school, they should be able to participate in all school activities--including recess. When students return to school after being ill, they must be well enough to participate at recess too. Of course we all want students to be at school as much as possible, but if a student's health is in question they should be monitored at home.
