Keeping Our Children Safe

With the sick season seemingly starting sooner than usual, we want to do our part in keeping our students safe. The following guidelines should be considered when determining if your child should stay home.

When to Keep Your Student Home

  • A temperature over 100.4 degrees 
    • Must be fever-free for 48 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.
  • Vomiting/Diarrhea
    • Must be free of vomiting/diarrhea for at least 48 hours
  • Persistent Cough
    • Cough lasting more than 3-4 days
  • Strep Throat
    • Any bacterial infection should be treated for at least 24 hours before returning to school
  • Pink Eye
    • Should be evaluated by a healthcare provider. If antibiotics are prescribed, the eye(s) must be treated for at least 24 hours before returning to school
  • Skin Rash
    • Any rash that may be due to an infection should be evaluated by a healthcare provider
  • Head Lice
    • Students with live bugs should receive treatment, and then return to school. We do not have a “No-Nit” Policy

This covers many common illnesses, there may be other illnesses that require your student to stay home. Contact the health room for questions.
