    Should I Keep My Child Home?

     

     

    The following guidelines should be used to help determine when your child should stay home from school due to illness:

    • Fever of 100 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours
    • Vomiting and/or diarrhea in the past 24 hours
    • Itchy, red eyes with discharge
    • Unknown rash
    • Ringworm of the scalp (until treatment has started)
    • Head lice or nits
    • Jaundice

    To protect your children at school, students that are assessed with any of the signs and symptoms listed above will be sent home.
