Sick Day - When to keep your student home

School policy requests a child stay home if he or she:

  • Has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher.
    • Keep your child home until his or her fever—100.4 or higher—has been gone for 24 hours without medication.
  • Has been vomiting or has diarrhea.
    • Keep your child home 12-24 hours after the last vomiting or diarrhea episode.
  • Has symptoms that keep him or her from participating in school, such as:
    • Very tired or lack of appetite.
    • Cough that he or she cannot control.
    • Moderate to severe headache, body aches, or earache.
    • Sore throat—a minor sore throat is ok for school, but a severe sore throat could be strep throat, even if there is no fever.

For more information, or if you have questions, please contact your school nurse.
