When to Stay Home

Your child is too ill to go to school if he or she has any of the following symptoms:
  • Temperature above 100F by mouth
  • Vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
  • Shortness of breath or has increase in wheezing during normal activity
  • Has a cough that interrupts normal activity
  • Rash over body or localized to one area of the body
  • Fatigue and needs bed rest (common with flu-like symptoms)
  • Signs of conjunctivitis such as red, crusty or swollen eyes

Remember:

Attendance is a must for your child to be successful in school. If your child’s absence requires a doctor’s visit, please turn in the medical excuse to your child’s school upon returning.
