    When should my student stay home from school?


    Your child is too ill to go to school if he/she has any of the following symptoms:               

    ·         Vomiting and/or diarrhea in the past 24 hours

    ·         Shortness of breath or wheezing (not controlled with an inhaler if they have asthma)

    ·         A cough that interrupts his/her normal activity or wakes them, or other family members at night.

    ·         An undiagnosed rash unless cleared by a physician’s note

    ·         Drainage from the eye

    ·         Severe sore throat

    ·        Fever- If your child has a temperature of 100° (or higher) in the past 24 hours they cannot attend school.  Children are to be fever-free for 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing medication, before returning to school.

    ·         A contagious illness that is treated with antibiotics, such as strep throat or pink eye, and has not been taking the antibiotics for a full 24 hours before returning to school.
