How are Diseases Spread?
Understanding how diseases are spread is the first step to preventing illness. The main way diseases are spread are:

We teach children to cough or sneeze into tissues and not onto surfaces or other people. If children sneeze into their hands, hands should be washed immediately. 

When Do I need to Keep My Child at Home?
You can help us keep illness from spreading at school by keeping your child at home if they are unwell. DK Schoolhouse requires children to stay at home if they develop the following symptoms:

Certain communicable illnesses including, but not limited to: chickenpox, head lice, HFMD, pink eye, measles.
