When Should Your Child Stay Home?

Below are some helpful guidelines to help you make that decision.

  1. Fever 100 degrees or higher, vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours. Must be free of fever, diarrhea, or vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school.
  2. Persistent cough or runny nose with thick discolored nasal drainage should be evaluated by a doctor.
  3. Rashes should be evaluated by the doctor. A medical note is required when returning to school 
  4. Red or pink, itchy eyes with crusty green/yellow drainage may return 24 hours after antibiotic treatment is started.
  5. Open sores with drainage should be evaluated by a doctor. A medical note is required when returning. Sores should be covered.
  6. Ringworm - may attend school after treatment. The infected area should be covered. When present on the scalp, should be evaluated by a doctor. Medical notes is required when returning to school.
  7. Head Lice - to help prevent further outbreaks, please let the school know if your child has lice. This will allow the nurse to check other students that have close contact with your child. We have a "No Nit" policy - ALL NITS must be removed before returning to class. A parent/guardian should accompany their child when returning to school.
  8. Chickenpox - may return to school when the blisters are dried or scabbed over. (5-10 days)

*It is important for the health of all students and staff that your child not be at school when sick. However, if you have any concerns about your child's illness, please contact your doctor.
