Family Emergency/Child Sickness
My child's sick... Who do I call?

If you or your child are sick or some other unforeseen problem develops and the scheduled visit by the school staff will not work, please call the teacher involved ahead of time, and if possible reschedule. If your child attends preschool please call the school to inform them that your child will not be attending that day.

If your child has any type of viral or bacterial infection, which could be spread to other children, please reschedule the home visit time or do not send your child to school. The staff works with a number of children, some being medically fragile. Just as you would not want us to needlessly expose your family to infection, please help us minimize the risk for other families.

The following should be used as a rule of thumb for deciding if your child’s teacher should not provide services or your child should not attend school:

  • The child has a communicable disease such as chicken pox, pink eye, the flu or flu like symptoms.
  • The child has diarrhea or vomiting during the night. Please wait 24 hours after vomiting and/or diarrhea subsides before allowing the teacher to provide services.
  • The child has a fever of 100 degrees or higher from more than one hour. Please wait 24 hours after the temperature is normal before services resume.
  • Strep throat must be treated with antibiotics for 24 hours before receiving home intervention services.

To cancel a home visit contact your child’s case manager directly.

If your child receives transportation please notify the transportation office at 507-328-4260.

If your child will not be attending school please also notify the office at your child's school.
