• SHOULD I KEEP MY CHILD HOME TODAY?

     

    Students should be kept at home for the following reasons:

    --Fever of 100°F or greater

    --Vomiting

    --Diarrhea

    --Red eye with crusty or purulent drainage

    --Suspected or known contagious disease

    --Undetermined rash

    --Persistent, uncontrollable coughing

     

    Students should not return to school until they are free of fever (temperature of 100°F or greater) without the aid of fever reducing mediations (Tylenol, Motrin, Advil) for at least 24 hours. Students should not return to school until they are free of vomiting and/or diarrhea for at least 24 hours.

    If your child has mild cold or allergy symptoms such as a nasal congestion, runny nose, occasional cough, watery eyes and no fever, parents may medicate their child at home so they are more comfortable while at school.
