Is My Student Well Enough To Go To School?
Families often wonder whether their student should stay home or attend school when they have symptoms of a mild illness. The following guidelines are intended to help with this decision.
If your student:
- Has a fever of 100° degrees or more, they should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal without fever reducing medication.
- Has vomited or has had diarrhea, the student should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode.
- Has a rash that may be disease-related or the cause is unknown, check with their health care provider before sending your student to school.
If your student is ill, please keep your student home and report the symptoms or illness using the attendance line or via ParentVue for tracking and attendance purposes. If your child has a contagious illness such as chicken pox, strep throat, pertussis, influenza, or COVID-19, please indicate that in your message or call the Health Office directly.
