When to Keep Your Child Home

  • There are many minor illnesses or injuries that often occur that do not require your child to be absent from school. There are also many illnesses that do require your child to be absent from school, for your child’s protection as well as the protection of the other students and staff members. Such conditions would include, but are not limited to:

    • Temperature higher than 100 degrees ( home for 24 hours without fever reducer)

    • Vomiting within the last 12 hours

    • Unexplained diarrhea 

    • Conjuntivitis (Pink Eye) that has not been treated for 24 hours

    • Injury or illness requiring intensive medical services

    • Adverse side effects from medication that needs monitoring

    • Head lice untreated

    There are also some contagious conditions that carry special requirements about returning to school, such as strep throat, chicken pox, flu, covid, etc. If your student has a condition or illness that you are unsure about with regards to school attendance, please contact your student’s health care provider first or your school nurse before sending your child back to school. We want to be a partner in promoting the very highest level of wellness for each student in our school environment.
