WHEN TO KEEP SICK CHILDREN HOME
Deciding when to keep a sick child home from school is not always easy. It’s important for children to attend school and for some parents staying home means missing work. But when a child is truly sick, they need to stay home in the care of an adult to get well and to prevent spreading illness to others.
Please keep the school office up to date with current phone numbers so you or an alternate contact can be reached if your child becomes ill or injured at school.
A child who has vomited, even in the absence of other symptoms, should not come to school until symptom free for 24 hours, without the use of vomit suppressing medication.
Any child with a fever of 100°F or higher should not attend school and should not return until they have been fever free for 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing medication. Please do not give your child fever reducing medicine and then send them to school. Children are likely to be contagious to others when they have a fever. In addition, the medicine will wear off, the fever will probably return and you’ll need to pick them up anyway.
The attached information may help you decide when to keep your child at home.
