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.
