Guidelines for Keeping Your Child Home from School

decorative graphicGuidelines for Keeping Your Child Home from School

Keeping your child at home when appropriate can support his/her return to health and learning—and help protect the school community from contagious illness.

Please keep your child home if s/he is experiencing:

Fever of 100 or more. Return to school once fever-free for 24 hours without medication.

Vomiting or diarrhea. Return to school once symptom-free for 24 hours.

Excessive coughing. A constant cough is uncomfortable to the child and disruptive to other students. Your child may need to be evaluated by a medical provider.

Strep Throat. Your child must be treated with antibiotics for 24 hours before returning to school.

Eye symptoms, such as redness, discharge and/or itching. Your child should be evaluated by a medical provider to rule out conjunctivitis (aka “pink eye”), a highly contagious infection. If the infection is confirmed, your child must be treated for 24 hours before returning to school.

Unusual rash or wound. Your child should be evaluated by a medical provider to rule out an infection.

Any condition that may be serious or contagious.
