• Is my child too sick for school?

    It is difficult to make those early morning decisions.  Please use this to help when you are making the decision to stay home or not.

    The main reasons for keeping your child at home are as follows:

    A child should stay at home:

    • If there has been any fever(100.4 or higher) in the last 24 hours. 
    • If vomiting and /or diarrhea has occurred within the last 24 hours
    • If a child has a frequent, persistent cough.
    • If a child has a persistent pain (stomach, ear, etc.)
    • If an antibiotic was prescribed, the student must be on the antibiotic for 24 hours or longer if directed by a physician before returning to school.
    • Bacterial pink eye (red or pink watery eyes that may have white or yellow discharge
