Is my child too sick to go to school
Parents are often confronted with this decision when a child complains of not feeling well. The guidelines set forth by the district can help one decide. Guidelines do not cover every medical condition and does not take the place of seeking medical attention. Please consult a doctor for specific medical advice.
*FEVER: Students should remain home if they have an oral temperature of 100.0 or higher (before taking medication such as Tylenol or Advil). They may return to school after they are fever-free for 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medications, such as Tylenol or Advil.
*CONTAGIOUS ILLNESS: Students should remain home for 24 hours after starting antibiotics or otherwise as directed by their physician.
*DIARRHEA: Students experiencing 2 or more water stools in a 24 hour period should remain at home.
*VOMITING: A student who has vomited 2 or more times in a 24 hour period should be kept at home.
*LICE: A student infected will be examined by the nurse and a phone call made to the parent/guardian. A note with treatment instructions will be sent home with the student. By following the homecare directions and doing a thorough job, we can prevent their spread or further infestations.
