Many questions are asked concerning when to keep a child home from school. Some general guidelines are as follows:
If a child has had a fever of 100 degrees or more, the child should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal without the use of Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen.
If a child has vomited or has had diarrhea, the child should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode without the aid of any medication. The child should be able to eat food without symptoms.
If a child has any rash that may be disease related or you do not know the cause, check with your family physician before sending the child to school.
If a child has head lice, use one of the special lice shampoos and follow the instructions on the label. Please notify the Health Office of the lice treatment. The student needs to be checked in the Health Office before returning to school.
Please let us know if your child has strep, chicken pox or any other contagious illness. If you have any health concerns, please call and speak with the nurse or health assistant.
