Many questions are asked concerning when to keep a student home from school. Some general guidelines are as follows:
If a student has had a fever of 100 degrees or more, the student should stay home for
24 hours after the temperature returns to normal
without the use of Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen.
- If a student has vomited or has had diarrhea, the student should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode without the aid of any medication. The student should be able to eat food without symptoms.
If a student has any rash that may be disease related or you do not know the cause, check with your medical clinic before sending the student to school.
If a student has head lice, they may return to school after they have received a hair treatment and hair has been thoroughly combed. Read about tips on treatment below. The student should check in the Health Office before returning to their classroom on the day they return to school.
Please call the attendance line every day your student is absent and report the type of illness, such as fever, flu, strep... If you have any health concerns, please call and speak with the nurse or health assistant at 651-487-4365.
