Regional School Unit 40
Communicable Disease
Keeping Your Child Healthy

When your child has a communicable disease, (i.e. chicken pox, strep infections, etc.) we ask that you notify your child's school.  This information enables us to let other parents know, if need be, through school newsletters or classroom memos, that there is a communicable disease they need to watch for at home.  If your child has symptoms suggestive of a communicable disease, you will be called to pick your child up from school. You will be asked to take your child to the doctor or begin appropriate treatment before returning him or her to school.
