When Should I Keep My Child at Home?

Students should remain home when they have a fever of 100 or above. They should remain home until they are fever free for 24 hours without the aid of fever reducers.

They should stay home if they are vomiting, have an undiagnosed rash, have uncontrolled asthma, or have untreated pink eye. Students must be free of these symptoms for 24 hours before they return to school.

This is in the best interest of your child and other children as well. There may be other conditions that would keep or send a child home that will be decided by the school nurse in collaboration with the parent.

If you are not sure you should keep your child home please do not hesitate to call and speak with your school nurse before you come in.
