From Boulder Elementary Student Handbook: 

ILLNESS - Ill Students will be sent home. When in doubt, the school will call home and ask the parent/guardian to make a

decision as to whether a child should remain in school, go home, and/or receive medical attention.  If the child is ill with a

communicable disease, a report from a doctor or health department may be necessary before the child returns to school. 

Emergency protocols will be developed and on file in the office and the classroom for students with IDEA or Section 504

disabilities which may require extra medical precautions. A doctor's excuse is required if a student is to stay in during recesses

for more than one day.
