When To Keep Your Child Home

Naturally we want your child in school as much as possible but there are specific times your child needs to remain home for his/her comfort, well-being, and to prevent the spread of communicable illness to classmates and staff.

  • When vomiting has occurred within the last 24 hours
  • When diarrhea has occurred within the last 24 hours
  • For a temperature of 100º or higher within the last 72 hours
  • When strep throat is suspected, but results of a throat culture have not been received
  • When there are any symptoms of acute illness such as persistent cough, runny nose, with body aches
  • When there is a rash
  • When one or both eyes are red, itchy, and have crusted matter or exudate in them
  • When there is a severe toothache or earache
  • When ringworm has not been treated

Your Child May Return To School

  • When your child looks and behaves like him/herself for 24 hours
  • When he/she has been on an antibiotic for 24 hours for strep throat and temperature is below 100º  for 24 hours without fever reducing medication
  • Students may return to school after proper treatment for ringworm (a doctor's note is required) and the lesion is covered with a bandage (exceptions will be discussed on an individual basis)
Suspected COVID-19 Return to School Protocol

We have continued to update our return to school protocols using information provided by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control, as well as the New York State and Nassau County Department of Health. If your child will be (or has been) absent from school with COVID-19 symptoms, or he/she has presented to the School Nurse with symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19, the following return to school protocols will be in place based on our current  COVID-19 Return to School Protocol
