    Sick Day GuidelinesKeep everyone healthy!

    To help prevent the spread of illness, we would like to give you some guidelines to help with your decision on whether or not to send your child to school. We ask that you keep your child home if he or she:

    • Has a fever of 100 degrees or higher
    • Has abdominal cramps, diarrhea or vomiting
    • Has a sore throat with a fever
    • Has a persistent (dry or productive) cough
    • Has a rash or open and draining sores
    • Has symptoms that prevent them from participating in school such as
      • Excessive tiredness or lack of appetite
      • Headaches, body aches, earaches
      • Severe sore throat (could be strep throat even without a fever)

    If your child has been ill, please be aware of the following guidelines before having your child return to school:

    • Be fever free for at least 24 hours (without medication)
    • Be free of vomiting and/or diarrhea for at least 24 hours
    • For strep throat, be on the appropriate antibiotic for at least 24 hours
    • For conjunctivitis, they must be on the appropriate eye drops for at least 24 hours or be cleared by a physician
    • Rash illness should be assessed by a doctor.
