When Your Child is Ill

Students with a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher should stay home from school until they are fever free without the use of fever reducing medications.

If the student has a rash they should be kept home until the cause of the rash is determined. Many diseases start with a rash before any other symptoms appear.

Students experiencing vomiting and/or diarrhea should remain home until symptom free for 24 hours.

Red watery eyes not related to allergies may be a sign of conjunctivitis. Bacterial conjunctivitis is contagious and students must stay home until prescribed medication has been administered for 24 hours.

Any question or concerns, please contact the health office.
