May a student be excluded from school because of the risk of an infectious disease?

Yes.  A school board or school superintendent may, with the approval of the county health officer, exclude a student from school attendance who is determined to be a risk or nuisance to the health of other students or school employees because of the presence of an infectious disease or communicable parasite.
