Staying Home Guidelines

When My Child Should Stay Home or Return to School 

Throughout the school year, there are many illnesses which make their rounds through the school population. In order to keep them under control and maintain a healthy environment here at school, these guidelines have been established for you to follow:

Fever - Your child should have a normal temperature for 24 hours before returning to school.  Tylenol & Ibuprofen will mask the symptoms of fever, so this means a normal temperature without the use of these medications.

Vomiting/Diarrhea - Your child should not have vomited or had diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.

Strep Throat - Your child should have been treated with antibiotics for 24 hours before returning to school.

Pink eye/Conjunctivitis - Your child should have been treated for 24 hours before returning to school.

Ringworm - Please supply a physician's note stating your child has been treated and is no longer contagious.
