Health Requirements


Immunizations and Health Records

Licensing rules require Kalamazoo Country Day School to have on file a completed physical and current immunization record, or a medical waiver for such immunization.

This information must be presented by the first day of school and be updated each year. No child will be able to start school until health records are in.


Medical Absences

 In case of an illness:
Call your child’s teacher or the office by 8:30 a.m.

Do not return the child to school until they are non-contagious (free of fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea for a full 24 hours)

If a student tests positive for a strep infection, s/he should not return to school until the throat culture is negative or antibiotics have been taken for at least 24 hours

All KCDS employees will be sent home if they have a fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea.
