From the School Nurse……..

Please refer to these guidelines when deciding whether or not to send your child to school when not feeling well.


    • Sick children heal more quickly at home where they are protected from other illnesses that are found in school.

    • Sick children can easily spread their illness to class mates.

Please keep children home if they have any of the following:

    • A temperature above 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the past 24 hours or needs medication to keep them under 100 degrees F.

    • Vomiting or diarrhea in the past 24 hours.

    • Severe head cold: sore throat, congestion or runny nose.

    • Frequent cough.

    • Unexplained rash.

    • Started an antibiotic in the past 24 hours for a contagious illness i.e. Strep throat (unless cleared by a physician).
