Teachers shall be alert to signs of illness and communicable disease and refer students who show such symptoms to the school nurse.

All students with a diagnosed communicable disease or with symptoms of a communicable disease shall be excluded from school and school activities. Regulations established by the Maine Center for Disease Control regarding communicable diseases shall be observed. The school nurse shall be responsible for notifying the local health department of all students having a reported communicable disease as required by law and Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services rules. The building Principal shall be notified of all reportable communicable disease cases and contacts in the school.

When a student returns to school after having been excluded as described above due to a reportable communicable disease, a certificate from the attending physician is required. The building principal and/or the school nurse must review the attending physician’s certificate and give permission before the student is readmitted to class.
