Student Illness
Many parents ask, “When is my child sick enough to stay home from school?” A child who is sick will not be able to perform well in school and is likely to spread the illness to other children and staff. We suggest making a plan for child care ahead of time so you will not be caught without a comforting place for your child to stay if he or she is ill.

Our school policy states that you should not send your child to school if he/she has:

• Fever, vomiting or diarrhea in the past 24 hours (condition must be resolved for 24 hours before the student may return)
• Chills (especially if accompanied with a fever)
• Sore throat
• Strep throat (must have been taking an antibiotic for at least 24 hours before returning to school)
• Bad cold, with a very runny nose or bad cough, especially if it has kept the child awake at night
• Head lice (until your child has been treated according to the nurse or doctor’s instructions)

DO NOT give your child medication to reduce a fever and then send your child to school. It is in the best interest of your child and the others in the class if you follow these guidelines.
