When To Keep Your Child Home From School

  • Please keep your child at home if he or she has:

    • a fever over 100° during the past 24 hours
    • a cold in the active stages, i.e. coughing, running, sneezing
    • a sore throat and/or swollen neck glands
    • an undiagnosed rash or skin eruptions
    • vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
    • head lice that haven’t been treated

    Since school health rooms are not equipped to accommodate sick children and since crowded health rooms lead to further spread of disease, it is imperative that sick children be kept at home. It is also crucial that parents make every effort to pick up children as soon as possible when notified by school personnel. Changes in emergency phone numbers should be made immediately.
