health-cdc-nurse information

When absences are necessary, parents are to notify the school’s office as soon as possible.  If a child is too ill to participate in scheduled classroom activities and learning, parents need to make alternative plans. The staff of WM receive both health and safety training.  Precautionary measures are taken when handling body fluids.  

Our district nurse, Ms. McKenna Grunhovd, will reference the following IDPH document (last updated 1/2022) often when making determinations for exclusion for school. Please contact her with any questions at 641-483-2671 or

Other information about leaving school early for sickness can be found in your grade level handbook located under the parents tab.
