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 24 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 normal for 24 hours
  • 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)
