Should I keep my child home or send him or her to school?
Please keep your child home from school if they have:
- Fever greater than 100.5
- Stiff neck or headache with fever
- Rash (new or sudden onset)
- Strep throat (must have been on antibiotics for 24 hrs. before returning to school)
- Jaundice (yellow skin or eyes)
- Diarrhea (3 watery or loose stools in one day)
- Skin sores that are draining
- Colored drainage from eyes
- Brown / green drainage from nose with fever
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; or serious, sustained cough
- Symptoms prevent student from participating in usual school activities
- Student requires more care than school staff can safely provide
A minor sore throat is usually not a problem, but a severe sore throat could be strep throat even if there is no fever. Other symptoms of strep throat in children are headache and stomach upset. Contact your healthcare provider as your child needs a special test to determine if it is strep throat.
Please keep your child home until his or her fever has been gone for 24 hours without medication. Children are also required to stay home until they have had 24 hours without vomiting.
Returning to school too soon may slow the recovery process and expose others unnecessarily to illness. Thank you for your help trying to keep everyone healthy.
