When Your Child is Ill

Students with a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher should stay home from school until they have been fever free for 24 hours 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.
