Sick Child- When to stay at home
School policy requests a child stay home if he or she:
- Has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher.
- Keep your child home until his or her fever—100.4 or higher—has been gone for 24 hours without medication.
- Has been vomiting or has diarrhea.
- Keep your child home 12-24 hours after the last vomiting or diarrhea episode.
- Has symptoms that keep him or her from participating in school, such as:
- Very tired or lack of appetite.
- Cough that he or she cannot control.
- Moderate to severe headache, body aches, or earache.
- Sore throat—a minor sore throat is ok for school, but a severe sore throat could be strep throat, even if there is no fever.
For more information, or if you have questions, please contact your school nurse.
