Requirements for Students to Return to School Following an Illness

This is a friendly reminder for all parents and guardians about what is required when your child returns to school after being out for illness as per the Orange County Health Department mandates.

A health care provider’s note is required on the day they return to school and should be presented to the nurse upon entrance to the school.  The note must state that the student is cleared to return to school and it must also state one of the following; the illness was not COVID-19 related, the alternate diagnosis, or that they met the isolation or quarantine requirements.

A student that returns to school without a note will be sent home until such a note is received.
