Health policies at ALA
Health policies—including how long students need to stay home following an illness—differ based on the illness in question. In general, you should know that:
- Health aides are not able to diagnose illness, and may refer you to your family doctor if an illness is suspected
- Health aides consider it their first priority to maintain the health and safety of all students and staff
Please review the following documents regarding ALA Health policies
