Important info from our district nurse!

It is important for parents to know that schools are required to exclude students with certain illnesses from attending school. The time a student must stay home varies by illness, and is defined by state rules.

For example, if your child has a fever over 100 degrees, he or she must stay out of school until fever-free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medications).   Students with diarrhea must stay home until they are diarrhea-free (without the use of diarrhea-suppressing medications) for at least 24 hours. 

A full list of conditions for which the school must exclude children can be obtained from the school nurse.

When your child is ill, please contact the school to let us know he or she won’t be attending that day.

Our Mission
The mission of the Merkel Independent School district is to provide, to the full extent of their individual abilities, all students with the skills of logical, independent, and creative thinking, and effective communication.  Further, as a result of instruction in our schools, students will acquire a knowledge and appreciation of our citizenship responsibilities, of our economic responsibilities, and of our American heritage.  In our schools, learning will occur in an environment of moral values and character, and these characteristics will be communicated to all students.  The accomplishment of this mission will be characterized by equity, efficiency, and accountability.
