    When To Keep Your Child At Home

    Please evaluate your child's health and ability to be productive in school when he/she complains of headache, stomach ache or cold symptoms, with or without fever.  Children often have no fever in the morning, but temperatures may rise as the day progresses.  The number of ill students who are sent to school is surprisingly high; it worsens your child's condition and exposes the entire staff and student body to illness.

     If your child has any of the following symptoms or conditions, please keep them at home:

    • Fever, now or at any time in the last 24 hours.
    • Vomiting, now or at any time in the last 24 hours
    • Diarrhea, now or at any time in the last 24 hours.
    • Extremely red, weepy itchy eyes.
    • Eyes were "glued shut" in the morning or have a yellow-ish drainage.
    • Any undiagnosed rash or skin eruptions anywhere on the body.
    • Sore, red throat.
    • Enlarged tonsils.
    • Excessive, uncontrollable coughing.

    If your child is taking any pain medication stronger than Tylenol or ibuprofen, or if your child has taken Benadryl that morning, please keep them home for monitoring.
