GUIDELINES REGARDING ILLNESS for children placed in Malmö International School

posted Mar 16, 2016, 3:06 AM by

Your child's general health, i.e. how they feel, is a large determining factor when it comes to deciding if a child is healthy and can return to school after an infection. If the child is spirited, has a good appetite and is fever/symptom free, they are probably healthy.   

At MIS we recommend that your child has had a symptom free day at home e.g. fever, rash, vomiting. This is to avoid the spreading of illness to other children and staff. 

Children have different recovery times after a period of illness. It is good not to be too quick to let your child come back to school after illness. Sometimes the child can be energetic in the morning, but still not cope with a full day of group activities, learning and running around.  

If a child is well enough to come to school, they will be expected to participate in all school activities including outside activities and Physical Education lessons.

Pedagogical staff are not permitted to administer medicine.

In chronic conditions in children where the effort of staff may be required, information should be given to all staff by the school nurse and parent. Before these meetings have been completed, no action will be taken by the staff.
