Attendance at school is very important, however, students cannot be expected to perform well if they are ill. Please keep students home if they are running a temperature. Students must be free of fever, vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours without the aid of medication before returning to school. If your child becomes ill during the school day, and/or has a temperature of 100 degrees or more, he/she will be sent home. Please make sure the office has current phone numbers for parents, guardians and all emergency contacts.
It is the policy of the Mustang Board of Education that if a student is required to take medication during school hours, and the parent or guardian cannot be at the school to administer the medication, an administrator, school nurse or designated school employee may administer the medication when authorized in writing by the student's parent(s) or guardian(s) provided by law.
For more information, please refer to your Mustang High School Student Manual for 2015-2016.
