It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure that medication is brought to school and taken home each afternoon.
Infections with or without illness, are common in children. When children attend school they are exposed to a large number of children, increasing the opportunity for the spread of infectious diseases. It is not possible to prevent the spread of all infections and illnesses within schools, however a lot of illnesses from infectious disease can be prevented.
Please refer to the Recommended Exclusion Periods for Infectious Conditions produced by Queensland Health.
