Unsure if your child should stay home? Refer to the Sick Day Guidelines and keep your student at home if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:

If your child becomes ill and doesn’t feel well enough to take part in school, as parents or guardians, you should keep your child home until the symptoms improve. This also can help to prevent the spread of the illness to others at school. These are some of the examples of when your child should be kept home:

  • Active diarrhea – three or more times in 24 hours

  • Active vomiting

  • Fever equal to 100.0 F or greater

  • Fever with headache, body aches, earache, sore throat

  • Pink eye symptoms (redness, itching, drainage, crusty, light sensitivity, etc.)

  • Undiagnosed or unknown rash (a rash that has not been seen or treated by a health care provider)

  • Rash/Sores with drainage that cannot be contained under a bandage (seek further medical attention by your healthcare provider)

  • If antibiotic treatment is needed, your child should remain home for the first full 24 hours of medication (e.g., if your child has three doses per day ordered, then three doses must be given before the child returns to school) If medication is needed during the school please see Medication Procedures section.

  • Please screen for COVID symptoms before sending to school (see COVID guidelines)
