Effective guidelines are clear, contain specific details, and are easy to understand.
Improving School Guidelines
Schools provide health and safety guidelines for students. Here is one school’s set of guidelines:
Guideline #1: Students with a fever must not come to school.
Guideline #2: Students with medical problems must bring a doctor’s letter that describes their problem.
Guideline #3: Students must have all their immunization shots updated.
Last year, many children got sick because one boy came to school with no fever, even though he still had a fever the night before. In addition, one girl was sent to hospital during a school trip because her teachers did not realize that she was not allowed to climb hills.
